Last week, the music video for Bon Iver’s song, “Holocene”, taken from the new self-titled album, premiered on the National Geographic website. The video, shot entirely in Iceland, was created by the Australian director/photographer Nabil Elderkin.
“[Iceland] is the most magical place in the world. It looked like Mars to me, so I always wanted to shoot there. When Bon Iver gave me the reins on this video, I knew it had to be filmed there,” explained Elderkin in an interview with National Geographic.
Without fully disclosing exact shooting locations, Elderkin told National Geographic that, “it was filmed on the east side of the island, in the region of Vik.”
Elderkin uses the country’s breathtaking landscape to captivate the viewer and recreate the emotiveness of the song. The video features footage of a young Icelandic boy roaming around the island’s volcanic landscape and shoreline, featuring black beaches, basalt columns, and glacier lagoons.
The Australian director has worked on many projects ranging from music videos to films, advertising campaigns to magazine editorials, and artist branding to books. Amongst others, Elderkin has worked for Nike, Warner Bros, Universal Music, Paramount Pictures, and MTV.
