Kurzbeschreibung

1. November 2013
For over a quarter of a century the renowned documentary photographer Ragnar Axelsson has been venturing out with farmers rounding up sheep in Fjallabak, one of the most extraordinary natural wonders in the sub-polar Arctic, under all kinds of conditions - snowstorms, downpours and sunlit skies. In this wilderness, cascades of rhyolite scree, hot springs, glacial ice and mineral green slopes create a peculiar interplay between light and surface. Ragnar Axelsson has created a magnificent photographic collection that archives an Arctic people's struggle with the whims of nature, and portrays the social changes that have gradually eroded their age-old traditions. Against this surreal landscape, the people appear as visitors to a strange world. They've left their daily existence behind to become itinerants in the realm of myth where the past and present are no longer distinguishable.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Ragnar 'Rax' Axelsson has worked as an international photojournalist for the past three decades. Highly acclaimed, he has been honoured as Icelandic Photographer of the Year on four occasions. His work in Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Siberia has appeared across a range of print media, such as Stern, The New York Times, Le Figaro, Newsweek, Time and National Geographic. 'Rax' has exhibited at art expositions and museums throughout Europe and the U.S. Behind the Mountains is Ragnar Axelsson's third book. His previous books; Faces of the North (2004) and Last Days of the Arctic (2010 & 2013) have been exceptionally well received. The latter was accompanied by a BBC documentary and was named one of the best photography books by the UK's Sunday Times and Germany's Die Welt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Isländische Cow-boys 7. November 2013
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It is a story about sheeps, horses and men. In Iceland, sheeps are set free at the beginning of the spring. Usually they walk around avoiding men, as they are becoming wild again.
In autumn, the first snow sends the signal for bringing sheeps back. In the wilderness of Iceland and especially in the mountains, they would not survive during the winter time. On a September day, the farmers and their friends will meet for the yearly roundup.
But bringing sheeps toghether is not an easy thing. The stockmen will have to climb steep mountains and run after each sheep, an exhausting work. Occasionally, they will be helped by dogs and horses.
Ragnar Axelsson (known as Rax in Iceland) brings us closer to that people. During twenty five years, he has been walking and riding with farmers and friends for the yearly roundup. This part of Iceland called Fjallabak, is probably the most beautiful and impressive landscape of the country. Is is remote and wild.
The first pictures are showing some aerial shots from these colourful mountains of Landmannaafrettur, situating the action.
In the second part, Rax is switching to black and white, his signature. The pictures are very strong, filled by the immensity of the landscape and the wilderness of the mountains. They show sheeps, horses, dogs, mountains and exhausted stockmen. Rax is never as good as when he is photographing people. You enter in their lives, you walk with them, you are exhausted with them, you can even feel what they think. Walking in these mountains is not an easy thing. It is very steep, the wind as always is blowing and more than often, the rain or the snow is falling.
RAX has been working on films with a Leica.

It is very steep, the wind as always is blowing and more than often, the rain or the snow is falling.
RAX has been working on films with a Leica. Later, he switched to a Mamiya 7 and as it was probably to easy for him, he decided to use a 6x12cm Linhof camera. It tells you a lot about the man. Riding on a horse, using a large format camera and lens, and shooting in the rain, may be the price to pay to make such a beautiful book. All the pictures are great! Subject, contrast, composition, every thing is perfect. Beautifully printed in Italy by EBS, on a beautiful paper, with a nice lay-out. If you like photography, it is a must to have this book.
By the way, there are two other books by Rax, both very strong, “Faces of the North” and “The last days of the Arctic”. You should have a look at them too.

You have to be a photographer (or from Iceland) to fully appreciate the beauty of this compendium. Beautiful.
