Photographer's Note

The church of Vidim Rarkirja in the northern part of Iceland. This church is one of the last building traditionally built. The use of turf for the wall was imposed by the lack of construction wood (it had to be shipped from Europe). The expensive wood was reserved for the "noble" part i.e front facade and the altar.

L'馮lise de Vidim Rarkirja dans le nord de l'Islande. Cette 馮lise est un des derniers t駑oins de construction traditionnelle islandaise. L'utilisation de tourbe pour les murs 騁ait dict馥 par la raret et le cot du bois de construction (le bois devait 黎re import depuis l'Europe). On r駸ervait le bois pour les parties nobles du b穰iments comme la fa軋de et l'autel.
