Open and Limited Editions
There are 2 categories: Open Edition and Limited Edition.
Black and White mostly also a small color selection in both categories. Striping the images of color often makes the image more visible to me as a whole and the elements more equal. Color does the same, but I often do not see it that way.
A unique book about these magnificent animals
A Special offer, only 100 books left from the first printing
In 2014 I published my book HROSS which means Horse or Horses. Originally, I had planned to have this book with images of Icelandic landscape and horses. That changed soon after I started the layout for the book as it came clear to me that it had to focus only on the Icelandic horse. I had published a landscape book in 2010 “Moments From Iceland” ( sold out) so therefore this decision was easily made. My images of the Icelandic horse are of regular horses, found out on pasture as I did not seek the horses used for competition. I wanted to capture the life and reality of the Icelandic horse in the rough nature it lives in. I had in my mind to ask Mr. Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, former president of Iceland to write the forewords for this book which he gladly accepted.
There are now only 100 books left from the first printing.
I'm now offering this book with 3. selected images from the book.

Image: The Heart of Love
An image I took not far from Reykjavik. Two horses were fighting lightly and I took a few images of them. When they stopped they put the heads side by side forming a Heart.
Image: Mothers Love
A young horse is seeking attention from his mother. Animals need love and attention to.

A week ago I visited Iceland for ten days together with my family. At the Skaftafell visitors center, I found and bought your beautiful photo book Hross. Great shots and straightforward design. The best souvenir from Iceland ever!
I’ve finally come around to write about my visit to Iceland this summer on my blog. In it make a mention of you and your gem of a photo book, Hross.

Hello. I have made five, 3-week trips to Iceland (two bicycling the Ring Road, and three backpacking in the West Fjords). I love the beauty of Iceland (and the beauty of my half-Icelandic wife).
I get turned off by all the tourist stuff, especially the photo books. But the instant I saw your book I could tell it stands out from the rest. You have really captured the raw beauty and emotion that I have only experienced first hand. My photos always fall short. I immediately bought your book, and since returning home, I wanted to buy a few more as gifts. But I cannot find this book for sale anywhere on the internet. How can I buy it (without waiting until my next trip to Iceland, which will surely happen)?
I visited Iceland for the first time back in March. Staying in Reykjavik, I came upon the little photography shop up the main street. I was blown away by your photographs of horses. I couldn’t decide which one to buy so instead I bought the book Hross which had them all in. So glad I did.
HROSS, meaning horses in Icelandic, I found in a small photography shop where the work of different Icelandic photographers is sold. On my first day in Reykjavik I made one of the most famous Icelandic tours, ‘The Golden Circle tour’ and had the chance to see the Icelandic horses close by, it has a long history that you can read here. The book contains beautiful photos of horses shot by Icelandic photographer Johannes Frank
I saw your beautiful book of Icelandic horses when I visited your country a few months ago, and since coming home I have regretted not buying a copy when I had the chance!Is it available by mail order to the UK?best wishes

Hi. I just returned from Reykjavik where I saw some of your amazing photographs of Icelandic horses in the window of a little store, unfortunately closed. I managed to purchase your book at the airport and I am now even more taken with these photographs. Are any of your “originals” (signed and numbered) available for sale ? Best regards

After more than 20 years in the large format printing business I have settled on using Epson printers and ink for all my fine art images. I do all my printed artwork on Epson papers and Epson ink only. This ensures the best possible outcome and long print life.
All my artwork in the Limited Edition have the Epson Digigraphie embossed stamp. Digigraphie is the result of many years of research by Epson into achieving the highest technical print performance. Using a combination of Epson printers, Ultra ChromeTM ink technology and the certified fine-art media, Digigraphie produces artwork to an extremely high quality.
Certificate of Authenticity. Every image I print from my selection has a signed certificate. It is print printed on the same paper as the image. This certificate is best kept with the image in the envelope it comes in, preferably on the back of the frame. On this certificate is the print date and number of the print. On the back of the image is my stamp with my name and print date.
My selected images in the Limited Edition are numbered 1/60 to 1/35 and 1/25 Plus I have 1 image in each size I sell as an Artist Proof. A/P and Limited Edition artwork has my name on the image.
A/P images will be sold separately and the price is different. Please inquire by email.
Print: On paper the image will fill about 84% of the paper, matting will hide the embossed stamp. Canvas prints are printed with gallery wrapping in mind
Open Edition: All paper images are printed on Epson Cold Press Bright 310 gr. Paper. I personally print the images and sign them.
Limited Editions Prints: All paper images are printed on Epson Cold Press Bright 310 gr. Paper. I personally print and sign the images. The images that are printed on paper have my Epson Digigraphie embossed stamp on the front under the image. On the back there is also a stamp with information about print number and print date. All Limited Edition images have Certificate of Authenticity . All Limited Editions have records of how to bought them and when.
Canvas LE images: Canvas Prints do not have the embossed stamp they will have a black Digigraphie stamp on the back. They are signed and numbered on the front before varnish is put over. Images are printed onto Epson Canvas. Hahnemuhle Varnish is used over the artwork to protect it from UV light and humidity. They are unframed ready to be put on a stretcher frame.
After each size has been sold out the image in that size goes out of print not to be sold again. There will only be printed a total of 120 copies of each image in the Limited Edition prints. Both paper and canvas count, meaning; if 50 images are printed on paper and 10 on canvas this would fill the 1/60 limit. AP images are always printed on paper.
Print run: My Limited Edition prints are printed in 3 sizes for maximum of 120 copies total. For each size there are 1. Artist Proof (A/P) making it total of 3. A/P
They are in the following 3. sizes in quantity of 1/60 1/ 45/ and 1/25

Centimeters / Inches
On the side I present the images as they will be printed on paper with some white around each image. This will not be like this if the images are printed onto canvas, then the image will fill the front and mirrored on the sides (Gallery wrapping) The images on the side are shown in centimeter measurements look, 60x40cm 90x60 cm ext.. All images are available in Inches sizes but some cropping might be necessary.

World Wide. All images are shipped in a strong Black Cardboard Postal Tube.
I use the Icelandic post service Postur.is for regular posts. Express post I use Fedex, DHL or UPS. Tracking is provided with each image.
When the image is stretched on the wood frame the image will be wrapped over the side of the frame, this is called gallery wrapping. My images are all printed with this in mind. they will have 3/4 inch or 20 mm extra material that will wrap over the corner on the stretcher frame.
The extra material on the side of the frame is mirrored from the image.
