Black and white landscape photos with a minimalist aesthetic by Reykjavik-based photographer Marino Thorlacius. Using deep blacks to establish a mood, some of the images look otherworldly and a feeling of isolation permeates each shot. Mainly fascinated by locations, he gets his inspiration from paintings as well as the moving image.

“I rarely describe my work in words, and I never try to explain what I am doing so I feel it is very funny when others do. Some are very analytic and say that they sense loneliness, misery and even depression in my work. I can understand these elements very well actually in terms of my early work for example my book that was full of photographs in that atmosphere.”
