While touring through Iceland, I came upon this lovely building in Fáskrúðsfjörður. It was built in 1904 and served as a hospital for French fisherman, who sailed every summer from Normandy up to Iceland for fishing cod. The hospital was closed in the 30′s.

  1. Definitely a haunting image. I love the structure that the parallel lines in wall siding gives to this image. A beautiful subject for black and white.

    My grandparents were from Iceland but I haven’t been there yet – this image stokes the fire a bit more.
