2018 Finalists

Natalya STONE

Artist statement: My series Euphoric is an emotional response and reaction to doing an aerial shoot over the Highlands of Iceland; an ancient volcanic land with the power to affect the rest of the world with her changes. Pure joy coursed through my veins as the wind swept through my hair, while flying over lava fields, river deltas, volcanoes, ice caps and the jaw-dropping beauty of the coloured mountains of Landmannalaugar. Everyday concerns were obliterated from my mind, as all I could ponder was how Earth is amazing; the natural colours are incredible, and we should look after her!
