DescriptionIn 2006 I was with my girlfriend on a vacation in Croatia on the island of Brac. We were having a nice day on the beach walking along the coastline when I noticed this girl standing on a rock quite close to the ocean she stood there and did´nt move and she seemed so lonely. I had fallen some distance behind my girlfriend that was walking ahead of me so I only took this one photo of the girl as I walked by, I never saw her face. I rushed to catch up with my girlfriend and we had walked some distance when I looked back and the girl was still standing there.A while ago I finally decided what I wanted to do with the photo and the end result is what you see here. I made the picture from the emotion I was getting from it. I put in the black background and the shaft of light and it just felt somehow right that way.
Vilhjálmur Ingi Vilhjálmsson, Reykjavík Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement I am a graphic designer from Reykjavík, Iceland. Photography is something that I recently discovered for myself after being on the sidelines for many years as an admirer of other people´s work. I think that both my design education and my work as a graphic designer has given me a good basis for photography as well as photomanipulation. My first camera was a Canon 350D that I bought for myself in 2006. I soon discovered that I had a real passion for taking pictures and that it was a great combination for my other passion which is graphic design. I now have the Canon 40D and a lens set up that I´m happy with (for now) and I am eagerly taking my next steps in the world of digital photography.
