The icebergs of the Breidamerkurjökull glacier slowly drift into the Jökulsàrlòn glacier lake to end their life in the form of ice there. Slowly toppling over whenever the 1000-year old ice on the underside has become less voluminous then on the topside, they are polished before washing back ashore on Breidamerkursandur (Diamond beach) as translucent, compact ice sculptures.
Robin Vandenabeele is a photographer based near Bruges in Belgium. Traveling extensively for work landed him with a desire to visually document all the places and moments that were frequented. There has always been a large amount of experimentation in his photography, for example by using outdated films, cross-processing and film pushing during development, using creative viewpoints and lenses when composing images. After seeing results from a experimental in-camera double exposure technique he became quickly interested in the further possibilities and has since not stopped to create series of juxtaposing city- and landscapes using both film and digital cameras on various locations visited around the world.
Being an autodidact in photography allows Robin to use a non-traditional approach to the image making process. His influences are photographers with diverse styles such as Sarah Moon, Mario Giacomelli, Man Ray, Henri Lartigue, Peter Beard, Franco Fontana, Jan Saudek and others.
Robin has work on display aboard several cruise ships and in boutique hotels all over the world. In 2018 he participated in the Photo Fringe festival in Trieste.
From 2010-2018 several nominations (black&White spider awards, Int'l color Awards) in various categories. His work is also used on a multitude of bookcovers.
