Hyperborea: Amazing Photos by Dan Holdsworth

Published Jul 2, 2014

“Hyperborea” is an awe-inspiring series shot in Iceland by British photographer Dan Holdsworth.

“The series unfolds like an elaborate set from a science fiction film. Picturing the landscape at night, the eerie lighting effects are not the result of computer manipulation, but rather the natural occurrence of the Northern Lights bathing the barren, volcanic countryside. Photographed with long exposures, Holdsworth’s landscapes develop a supernatural glow, making the mountains and rivers appear alien and atomic; the recognisable features of distant buildings, cars, and passing aeroplanes lend a disturbing familiarity to the apocalyptic scenes.”
