“Iceland is a wonderful country; I would even say that it is a true paradise for all the photo shooting-lovers. But what has become a real discovery for me is the bird’s eye view of the rivers flowing along the black volcanic sand. It is an inexpressible combination of colors, lines, and patterns,” says Ermolaev.
The light and shadow, the swirling formations, and the vibrant colors in his compositions are in fact rivers, glaciers, and, occasionally, a flock of seagulls that are merely tiny specks across the volcanic scenery. The alluring images blur the lines between landscape photography and abstract paintings, and viewers will find themselves peering closer to make sense of the odd shapes and intriguing textures.
