The series Vanished Summer is inspired by Gyrðir Elíasson’s texts on solitude and isolation that oscilate between the logical and the fantastic and explore the relationship between man and his surroundings. Elvarsdóttir's works reflect Gyrðir's world and, as in his works, the topic is interplay of man and nature. The book holds photographs of trailers in summer and winter, inscrutable pictures of nature and of unoccupied houses where man-made environment creates a a frame for the imagination of the spectator.
