You come from Hveragerði, grew up in this town. What is it like to live in Hveragerði?

It´s nice and quiet, the people here are relaxed and the town has made a name for itself as some sort of “artist town”. I can enjoy nature from my backyard but still live close to the big city (Reykjavík) so yeah, it´s good.

You took your pictures in “Ölfus”, what does that mean exactly?

That’s not quite true. Ölfus is a municipality, and on a map Hveragerði is a small dot within this larger region. It makes Hveragerði look like an island in a lake.

Hence the name, An Island in Ölfus. It only means that I photographed Hveragerði and its surroundings in a geographical context to Ölfus.

What role does photography play in your life?

It´s just something that I do …

Takk fyrir, Valdimar :-)!
