Anna Filipova’s new series Geothermal Energy focuses on the changing relationship between nature and industry in Iceland. The high rate of tectonic activity in there lends the landscape’s hot springs and volcanoes to the cause of sustainable energy, leaving the previously untamed natural landscape increasingly dominated by industry. Anna looks to change the way we view this co-existence of nature and industry, seeking to find beauty in the technological developments which allow Iceland to maintain one of the cleanest environments in the world.
Working predominantly with black and white photography, her documentation of our ever-changing relationship with natural phenomena challenges the established notion of what makes a landscape appealing. I don’t know about you, but I’ve certainly never seen an intricate web of silver piping look so lovely.
