Páll Stefansson


"My photography, a little bit like the wind, depends on which direction it’s blowing. Most of all, I like challenges, even small ones."

Based in Reykjavik, Iceland, Páll Stefánsson has been practicing photography for more than 35 years. In 1982, he was hired as photographer for the magazine Iceland Review in Reykjavík, Iceland, and later moved on to also becoming picture editor and since 2009, chief editor of the magazine Iceland Review/Atlantica, the largest magazine in English in Iceland. His work has appeared in many international publications, including Time, National Geographic, Newsweek, Geo, W, Sunday Times Magazine and the Observer Magazine, to name a few. In February 2014, Páll was awarded Photographer of the Year in Iceland, among numerous international and domestic photography awards and he has published more than 35 books - the latest being Africa - the Future of Football, with a forward by Didier Drogba. In 2013, he also published photo books about Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway for the National Geography books in Germany. He is currently working on a book about the Icelandic landscape.
