Eyjafjallajökull – Six Months after the Eruption

Photographer: Halldor Kolbeins


The Swiss branch of publishing house Axel Springer was looking for a photographer to accompany a reportage in Iceland for its new magazine Beobachter Natur.


As the reportage was on the aftermath of the eruption of volcano Eyjafjallajökull they needed a professional who was flexible and able to climb mountains. Due to the weather conditions a climb onto the volcano was not possible in the end. Therefore, a plane was chartered to take photos. Apart from images of the Eyjafjallajökull, they requested portraits of people living along the volcano and scientists exploring the eruption.
