Þór lives with his mother on a farm in the northwest of Iceland. He goes to school in a nearby village while his mother tends their flock of two hundred sheep. They are the last remaining people to inhabit the Ingjaldssandur fjord and their annual struggle with the isolation of harsh winter is only made [...]
They live together, they’re in their fifties and they look alike. They are never sick, they hardly ever travel. They lead the most simple and yet beautiful life at their farm where the routine is the same, season after season, year after year. They’re hard working but yet their daily routine is oh so free [...]

An article about Sputnik Photos in current issue of British journal of Photography.
Moldova is the poorest country in Europe. Following the vision of better future, more than one million of its inhabitants, i.e. 25 per cent, have left the country. It is this hard-earn currency flowing to Moldova from different parts of the world which helps to keep the Moldavian economy afloat. On the other side, the [...]
I was totally shocked by the anarchic attitude to architecture in Armenia. Being totally free as they are, Armenians can easily construct any building of any shape and in any place. In Yerevan, you can easily find ever newer levels being placed atop houses without any official authorisation. And this causes an incredible cacophony of [...]

Gaining importance as a source of fresh vegetables in times of crisis and becoming more amateur nature in better times, they make these shifts every time the political and economic situation in the Caucasus changes. They connect the city’s inhabitants with [...]
For the most part, they were to be pictures of ceilings, windows – the scenery that immobile war veterans see in front of their eyes. Images they will be doomed to watch till the end of their lives. After calling Timur, who, as I had earned earlier, has no hands and legs, I knew my [...]
The charismatic president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili had a dream and a plan. For nearly a decade of his leadership, he strived to mould the Caucasian country according to western models. Georgia was to be a germ of Western thinking and civilisation in that part of the world – in the direct neighbourhood of the [...]
The scenery here is soaked with resignation. All you can do is look at the mountains and imagine you are in Scandinavia – Norway, or even Iceland. Rocky peaks and mild slopes overgrown with fine grass. Landscape green from the ground and blue from the sky. An unambiguous and stark scenery. The decisions about the [...]
