Revelation from 2014, underlines this intention with images that appear almost magical. Each print shows a mysterious, undulating light and shadow, the light coming from above. There is an intense, almost erotic quality to the im- shapes accentuated by the strange light, almost impossibly soft, that caresses each fold. The shapes are in fact sheets of bubble wrap, pho- below the surface of a lake. This revelation in no way detracts from the beauty of the image, though
we may be surprised to realise that such beauty can be found in such an unremarkable material. The series does, however, tell us a lot about Sigurðsson’s method and the nature and half in the making, the creation
of these photographs involved his learning to scuba dive and then end- less experiments in several locations he was searching for – the sort of effort we normally associate with wildlife photographers who trek for months through the jungle to shoot the title of the series refers to, and that seems to sum up the artistic intention of Sigurðsson’s whole body of work, is that such wonders can be found right in front of our eyes – if only we have an eye for them.
