New Earth is a uniquely personal photography- and experience-focused book about the volcanic eruption in Geldingadalir, a small valley on the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland. When the eruption started on March 19th 2021, Jeroen was there with his camera to experience and capture this volcanic event from a front row seat. It was the beginning of a genuine photographic journey which exceeded all his expectations. In this book, he shares his collection of images strengthened by the stories of how he experienced photographing the eruption.
Jeroen Van Nieuwenhove, the award-winning photographer and author of this book, is a Belgian nature photographer who specialises in photographing wildlife and landscapes with great passion. He has been living in Reykjavík, Iceland, for several years, using it as his base to explore and capture the raw beauty of the land of fire and ice and the Arctic region in its entirety.
