Sophie le Roux’s dreamlike Icelandic landscapes
Sophie le Roux, who visits neglected corners of Europe to find the unfamiliar in the mundane and the charisma in its decay. Her latest series examines the wild landscapes of Iceland, ascribing an unsettling and alienating quality to what is traditionally understood as natural. Photographs of small natural objects are set beside vast natural vistas – the sea, the mountains and the crystals and rocks that compose them are all studied in harmony, the hyper-saturated colours defamiliarising these archetypical spaces in a way that allows them to be seen as if for the first time, with a new intensity of focus.
