Jónas Valtýsson is a young Graphic Designer and Photographer about to graduate from the Icelandic academy of the arts in Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavík. Although he may be young, his work shows a wisdom beyond his age. There is some interesting work in his design portfolio but the real gem lies in his work in photography. His stark, high-contrast imagery pulls you in and forces you to reconcile with haunting imagery. The backdrop of Iceland appears to be a perfect setting for his photos as well and goes miles in making the view feel as isolated as many of the subjects of his photographs. If you want to have a look at his work you can browse his website, or visit his Flickr page and like so many of us out there these days, he does have blog as well.
