Item description for Spessi: Location by Stephanie Cash...

In her catalogue essay to this remarkable new collection of photographs of the Icelandic landscape and other abandoned or emptied-out environments there, Art in America's Stephanie Cash writes, "There is a sense of comforting ordinariness that pervades the work of Icelandic artist Spessi. His subjects aren't grandly majestic or fashionably downtrodden. They just are. In various series Spessi has photographed Icelandic sites or people. But his are not the iconic images of tourist postcards. Instead, he captures the largely overlooked scenery you might pass on the way to the tourist hotspots--gas stations, construction sites, empty landscapes with snow-capped mountains in the distance. Printed on a large scale, the works imbue their subjects with a grandiosity that belies their ordinariness." Whether capturing a lone tree in a barren landscape, an empty kitchen or a humble office building, all of Spessi's work infers "the presence of humans, whether in memory or in anticipation."

Reviews - What do customers think about Spessi: Location?

Vernacular Iceland  Jan 6, 2010
I love this book! I found it by accident in the photography museum in Reykjavik when I visited Iceland. Spessi really knows his homeland and does a great job in sharing it, including architecture, landscapes, and interiors.

I would compare him to a Nordic combination of Stephen Shore and William Eggleston. The work is void of people and there is a serene quietness about the work that suspends time. Stephanie Cash's introduction is also fantastic. That's something I find rare in today's long work statements/introductions that don't always match the quality or the essence of the photography. But in this case it's a great match!

You won't regret owning this book, whether you've been to Iceland or not.
