Exstensive travelling has lead me – Jón Gauti – to many beautiful places, many of which are off the beaten tracks. My camera is always close by on my tours and some of the pictures can be viewed here on the site.
Besides this newest book I’m an author of two other successful books on Travelling and Mountaineering in Iceland. The second one Fjallabókin published in 2013 was even Nominated for the Icelandic Literary Price!
In 2013 I met George Fischer, a well known Canadian photographer, with more than fifty published photography books on his record. Hi wanted to do a picture book on Iceland and the two of us along with his son Sean Fischer joined forces.
