ICELAND: How to cultivate narrative methods and literary form from an artistic point of view? How to use both long and short encounters with people as a raw material to produce a book?

ICELANDIC ENCOUNTERS (1989-2015) is an artist's book by artist Brynhild Bye-Tiller, which contains 63 portraits from encounters with Icelandic people in the period of 1989 until 2015. It consists of colour photographs paired with a fact-based text for each portrait. With a minimum of information (name, location and profession) about each person which is a result of an encounter between the artist and the object. It's a narrative book produced with narrative methods. It cultivates literary form from an artistic point of view, using the photo book as a format and an artistic expression.

– After several periods on Iceland, I have a close relationship with the country including it's geology, history and it's people, who are still standing strong despite difficult times after the financial crisis in 2007. Iceland has affected me in a very profund way particularly the breathtaking volcanic scenery.
