My journey throughout the Viking world began in 2011, when I travelled to Scandinavia on the W.B. Bruce European Fine Art Scholarship to study and photograph archeological sites and saga sites. This website is platform to put my research, ideas, photographs and writing together, which will evolve into a project inspired by pre-historic landscape, Viking-age exploration, saga literature and the preservation of cultural sites.
On this blog, I will be posting photographs from my work in progress, thematic observations, short book reviews and excerpts from my travelogue.
