#112 Ari Sigvaldason

Iceland was simply amazing. When exploring the streets of Reykjavik, I came across a photo gallery. I stood there mesmerised as the photographer's style was stunning. I couldn't get enough! I walked past the gallery every day and yet it was never open. Sometimes there was a sign telling you to call him if you wanted to have a look but no one was ever there until my last day. I felt like a kid in a candy store. 

Meet Ari Sigvaldason. Ari laughed that he was a rather relaxed gallery owner and while his gallery was officially open from noon till six he was usually somewhere else taking photos and exploring. He was as friendly as the rest of Icelanders happy to help and chat. I couldn't resist taking his portrait.
