Who is the modern Icelandic woman?

Between 2010 and 2012, photographer Berglind Björnsdóttir worked to answer that question. Traveling around Iceland (and beyond), she stepped into the lives of forty-one Icelandic women, each with her own story to tell. As they cuddle their pets, admire their children, drink endless cups of coffee, and revel in nature, these strong, independent women offer insights into the common threads they all share. While posing for the camera, they share their hopes, dreams, and greatest accomplishments. From farmers to actresses to the former president of Iceland, this intimate project evokes the vitality and spirit of a remarkable assortment of women.
