Aluminum Church, Iceland


Taken in the spring of 2016 during a trip to Iceland.

There are more than 350 churches across Iceland. For a nation of only 330,000 people, that's a high number and may lead some to think that Icelanders are particularly religious. When Icelanders are born, they are immediately registered as Christian into the Lutheran Church of Iceland. Fourteen-year-olds are traditionally confirmed and this is a common rite of passage into adulthood.

While 85% of Iceland's inhabitants are supposedly Christian, the country is considered the sixth-most atheistic nation globally.

In 2015 Iceland was voted the most godless country in Europe given that hardly any young people believe that God created the world, as well as the fact that a very high number of children are born outside of wedlock.

Please Note: Your image is custom printed to Jack's specifications using 100% cotton Hahnemühle paper and archival pigmented inks from the original high-quality digital capture. It will likely take between 14-28 days for your print to arrive. Each print undergoes rigorous quality testing to ensure it is up to archival standards (meaning the prints are crafted to be able to be placed in a museum for many years). Expect closer to 28 days if it was framed, and 14 if it was rolled or matted. Larger prints may require additional time.
