Icelandic Hillbilly


On a recent trip to visit my mom’s in the Ozark Mountains I had the great pleasure to meet Gretar who immigrated to Wisconsin after his mother in his late teens from Iceland. He eventually came to live in the Ozarks.

He’s an incredibly animated character that has you smiling from the moment you meet him until he leaves and with a heart as big as anything he’s the first one to help anyone out. He has an awe for the beauty of nature and the simple pleasures in life. Very thrilled to have gotten to meet and photograph him.

  1. This is so wonderful, Son. Gretar thinks you rule the world now I can hardly wait until he sees this. Beautiful tribute to a beautiful Soul & good heart. Luv you, Mom.
