My series of three photographs have all been made in Iceland, just prior to Christmas. This is a lighthouse on the south coast. I wanted to show symmetry, emptiness surrounding it and the transition from land to sea.
The lighthouse has a great responsibility.
In Iceland I was taken by the wide open spaces, uncluttered land and in my bid to escape from the busyness of family life, especially in the run up to Christmas, it was just the space and mental decluttering that I needed.
I have great responsibility too.
If the lighthouse fails to keep on shining, all around it may founder!
