The Earth Is Only A Little Dust Under Our Feet by Bego Antón
A collection of works by Spanish photographer Bego Antón.
"This is a fairy tale about the people of Iceland who believe that magical creatures such as elves, trolls, fairies and monsters live everywhere and interact with humans on a daily basis. Astonishing tales like these, Vigo visits fortune-tellers and devotees to record never-before-seen portraits, fairy-tale landscapes, and compelling and unforgettable tales. Having traveled all over Iceland, Vigo Anton graduated from the Icelandic Elf School and holds a degree in Elves and Secret Peoples."If there is a place that believes in magic, If so, Iceland is definitely the place,' says Anton, and with this book she invites you on an adventure to find hidden huldufólk (Icelandic Elves) here and there! If you're lucky, you'll feel a slight tug on your socks as a sign of a lively elf beside you.
Bigo traveled north to south and east to west across the majestic Iceland in search of places where fairy-tale creatures lived. And they searched every gas station, library, grocery store, or hotel for anyone who could communicate with such beings, and found people with special abilities who could see them. She didn't succumb to the forces of nature in Iceland's harsh winters or the fact that she was a Spanish-speaking gentile trekking in remote areas. Her curiosity and imagination drove her on her adventures and protected her along the way. Vigo's visitors share with her highly personal experiences with the magical creatures that exist in this world, and her book reveals her full story. "I'm no dreamer, but I believe that everything in this world is worth investigating, and perhaps there is a world between reality and imagination. ’” said Vigo after completing her journey. ”- Publisher commentary
