Barren Grace

Photographer Laura Brandt's capture of the craggy landscape of Iceland, the viewer is prompted to ask, "Where does the essence of ordinary grace unfold?"

Nestled in the midst of craggy outlooks scattered under open sky, small figures cluster on outskirts of an outcropping. Photographer Laura Brandt's shot evokes a sense of smallness, the figures juxtaposed against her landscape in such a way so as to suggest that the viewer themselves are perched on one such craggy outlook peering in. And so, the viewer is prompted to ask, how so does ordinary grace unfold against the barren expanse of eternity?
