At some point during every trip that I take to Iceland I entertain the fantasy of moving to a small coastal town and opening a little bookshop. But reality always wins out when I remember what Icelandic winters are like. Photographer Isley Reust overcame those qualms and made the big leap from living in Los Angeles to the remote fjord town of Ìsafjörður in far north western Iceland. Reust, who has both German and US citizenship, found that her life in Los Angeles was not what she wanted. Reust said that she always knew she’d end up in Iceland as she’d flown over it many times. She now makes her living now as a travel and wildlife photographer and shares her work showcasing her beautiful country on Instagram. In the charming short video below she explains how it all came to pass.
