In October of 2011, a small group of filmmakers, photographers and musicians traveled to the remote countryside of Iceland to document their experience with the landscape, traditions and people encountered along the way. The end result is a series of improvised, collaborative musical vignettes - based on field recordings and visual material collected on location - amidst documentary footage of the journey to a uniquely breathtaking place. The feature-length film and accompanying soundtrack are slated for launch in June of 2012, featuring the work of thirteen contemporary classical composers and electronic producers.

So I saw all of these pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do something that is not news footage but something more cinematic. But the flights to get over took forever as expected (somewhat). 4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get.
Wish I had more time. I missed all the cool Lightning and the Lava of the first eruption. But I figure this will just be a trial run for another day.
I am of course accepting sponsors to send me back there for more please...!! haha
Pete Eckert is a totally blind person. But through his photography, he proves that he IS a visual person, he just can't see.
Pete was the Grand Prize recipient of the SeeMe Exposure Award in 2008, an international photography competition, and was awarded $2,008 with a formal reception at Leo Kesting Gallery in New York City on Thursday August 7, 2008.
SeeMe is proud to present this truly inspiring portrait of the artist.

Having missed our return flights, Fergus Dingle (http://tiny.cc/dnf3z) of Pukka Films and I tried to slow time in order to make the most of a free afternoon in HK. Naturally I left my 7d running to document our efforts.
