Photography by Jesse Pafundi
Iceland is a rugged, raw and beautiful country full of insane landscapes. Jesse Pafundi’s photography perfectly captures the untamed natural beauty of this magical island through medium format film photography, offering a new perspective on a very popular destination.
“I shoot film. I shoot film because it makes me feel. It creates a stronger connection between myself and my images. It’s raw. Each frame is a decisive moment that cannot be duplicated, redone or changed. It is perfectly imperfect. Film…just is.
I’m a traveler, and adventurer and light seeker. My cameras come everywhere with me and photographs are the souvenirs of my life story. They are quite literally, my lifeblood. When I travel I often shoot with my Hasselblad 501cm, a medium format film camera. This camera is how I create my art. On lighter days or when I’m doing more of a documentary series, I turn to 35mm films and my Nikon FM3a.”
