Claus Sterneck (Germany, Iceland)

Claus SterneckClaus (1970) first visited Iceland in 2003, going straight to Djúpavík (Westfjords) for a week. He immediately fell in love with Djúpavík and Iceland – and knew that this place would change his life forever. After spending two summer in Djúpavík he decided to stay in Reykjavík over the winter 2008/2009 instead of returning to Germany. He now happily lives in Reykjavík where he works as a postman.

His photography blog shows Iceland from a different perspective. His focus is on showing a unique view of Icelandic daily life which cannot be found in most picture books and articles on Iceland. Claus has been showing his photos in Iceland since 2009. His pictures have also been shown abroad. One of his projects is “Pictures – and their sounds”, which combines the element of sound with his photography. When taking a picture, he also records the sound of the surrounding environment. Have a look here:
