In this unique and powerful book, Nökkvi Elíasson´s photography and Aðalsteinn Ásberg Sigurðsson´s poems tell the story of the deserted buildings that litter the Icelandic countryside – echoes of a bygone era and a way of life that is all but forgotten.
Nökkvi Elíasson has received much critical acclaim for his photographs dipicting Iceland´s vanishing rural past. Aðalsteinn Ásberg Sigurðsson´s elegiac poemsserve as a seamless counterpart to these images and have been translated into numerous languages.
