Photographer's Note

Ingjaldshσll is a church on the Snζfellsness peninsula, which is in the West part of Iceland. It is believed that this is the oldest concrete church in the world, built in 1903.
A painting in the church shows Christopher Columbus conversing with the local clergyman in 1477 about the voyages of the Icelanders to the west (now America).
Indeed, life stories of Columbus indicate that he visited this part of Iceland in the company of English merchants in order to get information about the earlier Viking voyages to the west.
