Lights of Iceland

In these landscapes, which are so surreal they are almost like paintings, BRUNO MEMEINT captures the stark beauty of Iceland, a land known for its harsh climate and astounding ephemeral light.

A PHOTO ESSAY


The island of ten thousand waterfalls is the land of volcanoes, geysers, the largest glacier in Europe, and extraordinary landscapes. It is a land of Vikings, with severe climatic conditions in the long winter months.

The practice of Heartfulness Meditation over the past decade has changed my view of nature, influencing my photographs. How was I going to discover and approach this country, a paradise for photographers, but unknown to me? I relied on my heart, knowing that it would guide me throughout my stay, as it does in my daily life.

There is such an impression of being tiny in front of these mountains.

The night is complicit in the appearance of the famous Northern Lights. The moon also brings its own light.

Like a projector, a ray of sunshine highlights this typical Icelandic house.


The answer was the light,
so particular and ephemeral,
that sculpts the unique landscapes,
bringing to them
an almost supernatural side.

As much as I felt the spiritual energy during my various stays in India, in Iceland it is the telluric energy that dominates. It’s a bit like traveling back in time, with volcanoes and lava flows, geysers, and black sand on the beaches. But there is also the hope of light that illuminates the darkness. At least that’s what I tried to express in my pictures.

  1. Nature Nurture. Now I learned about the ‘Telluric’ state, and imagined living in a void, and time is ever eternal here.
    Thank you.

  2. Dear Bruno, your photographs of Iceland are super spiritual and I can’t stop going back to them.
    Thank you they are brilliant.
    Kindest regards and a beautiful festive season to you and yours.
    Ingrid
