Issue (03) is dedicated to Reykjavík, Iceland. A stunning and charming city, surrounded by some of the most eerily beautiful landscapes, the world's most northerly capital is our setting for Elska's third edition. It's also a very special sort of homecoming for Elska - indeed the word 'elska' is the Icelandic for 'love'.
Inside you'll meet fifteen local boys, photographed at home and in the great outdoors. And like the previous issue, the Reykjavík men are a diverse lot - though all are Icelandic residents, we meet expats from France, Belgium, Turkey and Brazil... so it's not all blonds here (though we have those too!). Beyond the photographs, each and every subject submitted their own personal story, printed in their unedited original versions and followed where applicable by English translations. The combination of autobiographical stories and unairbrushed images makes this a particularly intimate issue.
In our Elska Dehors features, we also include work by two other photoartists from beyond Reykjavík. There's a series from Rio de Janeiro by Lauro Justino as well as a set from Paris by Pedro Ivan Serralva. This issue is an absolute essential for your Elska collection, and Reykjavík too should be on your travel bucket list. Velkominn!
