I photographed these attractive model turf houses, historically recreated at Skógar Museum in Iceland, which looked like houses born from the earth. Historically, they were built using turf, due to the lack of availability of timber in Iceland and the challenging climate to provide insulation; a symbiosis of people with Plants & Planet.
