My name is Magnus Snorrason and I live in Belmont, Massachusetts, USA.

I am a nationally exhibited fine-art photographer. My background in science shows through in my photography: I am attracted to abstract concepts and elegant forms. In my quest to evoke an emotional response, I photograph people. Some nude in my studio, others in environmental portraits, and often with a touch of wit.
