Photo Tour of Iceland in Black and White

Born in Thessaloniki, Greece, Peter Zéglis is a self-taught photographer and Civil Infrastructure Engineer with a background in graphic design and classical arts.

In a fantastic photo series posted to Behance entitled island I, Zeglis takes us on a black and white photo tour of Iceland using his analog medium format camera.

On his passion for photography, Zeglis states:

“My interest in photography grew almost instantly. More precisely, it was a transformation of things that dwelled inside me when they found their exit out through this very medium.

 

What I see through photography is relations. Ideally, between man or manmade, surrounding space and the natural environment. It’s a statement of the obvious, but I am drawn by nature. It’s not the conventional idea of beauty rather than the magnetizing power and superiority of nature. Weather changes, wind-beaten land, volcanic landscape, remote places.

 

I think that personal interpretation in art is essential. The infinite possible perspectives, the countless ways of interpretation in art, can lead to such abstractions that most things seem to lose their meaning. However, certain aspects at the base of our consciousness which survive chaos, permit non-linguistic communication and understanding. In this respect, semantics and semiotics are fractions of reason itself. If not reason in its contemporary meaning, then of a primordial interconnection; the very core of our brains’ mutual archetype.”
