PÁLL STEFÁNSSON


[b. 1958] Icelandic photographer, picture editor and author

When I was around 20 years old I began to take pictures. It changed my world. The sky was no longer just blue or red, rather an infinite spectrum of colours. Things which I had never noticed began to obtain form and life. Travelling, even just the short distance to school, became an experience. Sparrows which sat flocked together on telephone lines were like notes on paper, forming a song which I saw and wished to give others the opportunity to hear and see - a picture. - Páll Stefánsson - in the introduction to his book, Panorama - Iceland by Páll Stefánsson

My camera is my best friend when I travel. It opens doors for me, and helps me to see things that I would not have noticed. I keep memories forever on film, like the sunrise on Mt. Fuji, or a Greenlandic sledge dog staring at me in Uummannaq, northwest Greenland. Yes, a camera really is a man's best friend. - Páll Stefánsson - Atlantica - Icelandair, September/October 2003 - page 24
