Iceland is a land of contrasts - a realm of dark and light, hot and cold, shades of grey and vibrant colours, where barren landscapes juxtapose verdant ones, and cacophonous sound is set against hushed silence. Photographers Orsolya and Erlend Haarberg have captured these contrasts and the results are showcased in their book Iceland in All its Splendour, published by FORLAGID.
