Iceland is the homeland of geysers, springs of boiling water that emerge near volcanoes, bursting up every so often to create columns of hot water and steam. The great Geysir, the oldest and best-known geyser, for which this phenomenon is named, has been active for over 10,000 years and it is encircled by an almost surreal landscape. The boulders and soil are coloured by all the minerals in the water, the active procreators of ever-new sulphurous and boiling wellsprings: clear, and then turquoise and even milky. The sulphur fumes and steam rise into the air to encounter the clouds floating in the sky over Iceland.
After an educational path in which curiosity and observation were fundamental, Andrea De Amici turned to photography, driven by a passion to illustrate the cultures and people of the world through images. He specialized in portraiture and travel reports, the genres that characterize his research, after attending courses organized by Nikon. His reportage goes from Iceland to Myanmar, Morocco, Thailand, Peru and Africa. De Amici is a freelance photographer based in Milan and he parallels his photographic career with courses in digital photography and travel workshops aimed at teaching strategies, principles and techniques.
