The Icelandic horse played a major role in Norse mythology.
Several Norse gods as well as their enemies owned them. They were also the Vikings’ best friends, often buried alongside their owners.
Today, when riding with a herd of loose horses across the Icelandic landscape it’s like traveling thousands of years back in time, or to another galaxy in a movie set in an indeterminate future.
The photographs of Swedish artist Susanne Walström show exactly this poetic interaction between horses and nature.
Her new publication take you on an unforgettable journey through her artistic world.
