Rebekka Gudleifsdottir is further proof that while Icelanders are few in number there’s an awful lot of creativity bubbling away on that small island:

All photographs are taken by myself (also the ones with me in them) and all post-processing is done by me.
I am self-taught.
I decided to become a photographer in May of 2005.
There is nothing I would rather do.

Now that’s an artist’s statement.

Her self-portraits are outstanding, and more are at her blog which is sadly rather quiet – after all, I like ranters and not every blog has tales of eating sheep’s eyes and other things Icelanders do.
