Michael Schlegel is a photographer from Berlin, Germany. He stunning works in black and white span the globe. These works from Iceland are a prime example of his body of work. I love black and white photography because sometimes it seems that after the intensity of the web with all the colors, ads, and moving things that black and white images are a relief and a refuge. Spending time with these images helps restore my mind and soul with their clean lines and uncluttered and undemanding presence. There is a stillness about them, even when they depict crashing waves that I think is necessary in modern life.
