Since 15 years I'm traveling and guiding photography tours in Iceland. Although I am Swiss, my heart and soul live in Iceland. At the age of 18 I hiked alone through the Icelandic highlands for almost 3 weeks. Since then I go to this magical place several times a year. A year without Iceland is a lost year. But Iceland has changed a lot within the last years - not least because of photographers and filmmakers like me, who are still getting more people to travel to this little country. Many tourists in Iceland take no account of this fragile nature. They walk over the moss, let the engine run everywhere, leave their waste lying around, ... But far from the Golden Circle there is still a huge wealth of beauties that are deserted and untouched. Let us take care of this unique country.
Element is non-narrative 3 minutes film and it’s all about three main elements - earth, water and air. From Norwegian fjord to lonely shores of Lofoten island, from beautiful northern coastline to rocky beaches of Portugal, from Icelandic majestic landscapes to Russian mirror like lake, these elements are always present in each and every scene of this film.
