ABOUT THE ARTIST
Icelandic/Canadian Photographer Eydis S. Luna Einarsdottir began her visual journey at a young age, influenced by her father - an avid photographer & her artist mother, and the Icelandic light and landscape.
In 1990 her passion for photography brought her to the United States where she studied at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara California and graduated with a BA in Commercial Photography and Colour Technology in 1993.
Eydis continued to live in the USA for 15 years, but has now made Vancouver BC, her home. Throughout the years she has maintained a strong connection to Iceland both in work and personally. Seen here with her mother Svala, who travels with Eydís and her father Einar around Iceland every year.
