Many Icelanders believe in ghosts, elves, «huldufólk» (the hidden people), and lots of us even have connections with these other-worldly creatures.

Living habits of people decades ago, might have justified their experiences and relationships with the unknown. But how can we explain this belief today?

I collected true stories from Icelanders related to supernatural experiences and based my images of  them.

In my project Obscure Presence, I aim at showcasing these tales and at creating a body of images that propels this atmosphere related to them.
