Olafur Eliasson, The Volcano Series

A wall of stunning photos, tiled out across the gallery, makes up Olfaur Eliasson’s The Volcano Series. Born in Denmark but raised in Iceland, Eliasson photographs the natural beauty that surrounded him growing up. Each crater photographed is spectacular—some rimmed with snow, some filled with ice-blue water, and others surrounded by emerald grass. Together they overwhelm the viewer, giving a sense of the scale and scope of a landscape.

The Volcano Series is on view as part of Bikuben until December 20.
