Vegans in Iceland by Jonathan Straight (Signed)
Vegans in Iceland
Are there vegans in Iceland?
Photographer Jonathan Straight hoped to find out when he visited the volcanic island.
This collection of portraits documents a remarkable and thriving community; each person's journey is very different but reaches the same conclusion.
From a pioneering chef to a footballer, from a former sex worker to an octogenarian, this book gives a sensitive insight into their world.
As they say in Icelandic, njóttu!
Dr Jonathan Straight FRSA is a British photographer based in Yorkshire. He specialises in documentary, portrait and street genres. He had no formal training in photography, instead learning at the knee of his late father who was a keen and talented amateur.
Receiving a 35mm camera for his tenth birthday and carefully watching his father work in a home dark room gave him sufficient grounding to produce his own work.
Having enjoyed a former career as a successful environmental entrepreneur, he now continues to work on various photographic projects as well as being involved with different businesses and charities.
He was shortlisted for the British Portrait Awards 2019, has had photographs published in various places and has held several exhibitions of his work. In 2018, he published Blood, Sweat, Tears and Helicopters, a documentary study of the Israeli ambulance service. This is his second book of photography.
