Weather Experience – Photography

There’s a saying in Iceland: “If you don’t like the weather, wait 15 minutes”. There are probably few places in the world as unpredictable in this regard, a reason why Icelanders possibly like talking about the weather so much.

Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir’s photography contains a unique sensibility — it is dramatic and spare without being stark. Both a landscape and a portrait photographer, her magnetic qualities come together in her self-portraits and luminous snow-scape and coastline images.

Her breathtaking imagery of her native Iceland and her mastery of editing has made Guðleifsdóttir an icon of digital photography. The Weather Experience is a collaboration between Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir and Ólafur Kolbeinn Guðmundsson.
