Yes!! Your magnificent book arrived yesterday and I could not be more thrilled with it..Thank you,thank you….Wishing you all the best-Suzanne
A week ago I visited Iceland for ten days together with my family. At the Skaftafell visitors center, I found and bought your beautiful photo book Hross. Great shots and straightforward design. The best souvenir from Iceland ever!
I’ve finally come around to write about my visit to Iceland this summer on my blog. In it make a mention of you and your gem of a photo book, Hross.
I saw your beautiful book of Icelandic horses when I visited your country a few months ago, and since coming home I have regretted not buying a copy when I had the chance!
Is it available by mail order to the UK?
Your beautiful book arrived me and I’m so happy about this! Thank you so much!

Hi. I just returned from Reykjavik where I saw some of your amazing photographs of Icelandic horses in the window of a little store, unfortunately closed. I managed to purchase your book at the airport and I am now even more taken with these photographs. Are any of your “originals” (signed and numbered) available for sale ?
Dear Johannes, in my last holidays in Iceland I bought your book “Hross” with the beautiful black and white picturs of the icelandic horses. Until now I never come to the idea to transfer colour pictures into black and white – but after reading your book I tried with some of mine and it worked quite good – your book really inspired my.
I have an icelandic horse myself – I really love these little big horses and I think your pictures really show their magic and wonderful character.

Hello. I have made five, 3-week trips to Iceland (two bicycling the Ring Road, and three backpacking in the West Fjords). I love the beauty of Iceland (and the beauty of my half-Icelandic wife).
I get turned off by all the tourist stuff, especially the photo books. But the instant I saw your book I could tell it stands out from the rest. You have really captured the raw beauty and emotion that I have only experienced first hand. My photos always fall short. I immediately bought your book, and since returning home, I wanted to buy a few more as gifts. But I cannot find this book for sale anywhere on the internet. How can I buy it (without waiting until my next trip to Iceland, which will surely happen)?
Whilst traveling the West fjords earlier this year, I have bought your booklet “Moments from Iceland” in the Hotel Sandafell in Thingeyri.
I would like to get a second one – but cannot find it in international book stores. Please let me know what procedure you normally use to ship to locations outside Iceland.
Thank you for your response.
HROSS, meaning horses in Icelandic, I found in a small photography shop where the work of different Icelandic photographers is sold. On my first day in Reykjavik I made one of the most famous Icelandic tours, ‘The Golden Circle tour’ and had the chance to see the Icelandic horses close by, it has a long history that you can read here. The book contains beautiful photos of horses shot by Icelandic photographer Johannes Frank
I visited Iceland for the first time back in March. Staying in Reykjavik, I came upon the little photography shop up the main street. I was blown away by your photographs of horses. I couldn’t decide which one to buy so instead I bought the book Hross which had them all in. So glad I did.

Johannes even contacted me to see if I would like him to autograph his book. This made an even more special book as a gift for my son who had recently travelled to Iceland. This is a beautiful book with fantastic photographs by a true artist! Read less

MOMENTS FROM ICELAND
In 2010 I decided to publish my first book I wanted it to be in Black and White. The reason for using black and white was mainly because I wanted to go out from the mainstream in Icelandic landscape books which are almost all in color.
Very few modern landscape books of Icelandic landscape exist.
This book is now sold out
