The Reykjavík Grapevine’s “Life In Pictures” feature required a story to be told on a single tabloid page, using only images, captions and a brief introduction.

I shot a series of these focusing on a day in the life of modern Icelandic heroes, including: a search and rescue team at an erupting volcano; a coast guard helicopter crew; and the medical team operating a mass COVID-19 vaccination centre. I was also responsible for image selection, layout and text to convey each story.
