An exhibition about The Guðmundur and Geirfinnur case which has become the biggest and most controversial murder investigation in Icelandic history.
Sugar Paper Theories is the name of an exhibition by Jack Latham that will be opened at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography on Saturday 16 September at 15:00 (3 pm). Professor Gísli Guðjónsson CBE, a former Reykjavík policeman and forensic psychologist, opens the exhibition.
“The Guðmundur and Geirfinnur case has become the biggest and most controversial murder investigation in Icelandic history. British Photographer, Jack Latham, has immersed himself in all aspects of the case, meeting key protagonists, exploring and photographing key sites from the investigation. From police files to conspiracy theories, forensic science to the notion of Memory Distrust Syndrome, Latham’s project examines issues of evidence and truth, certainty and uncertainty, especially with regard to memory and the medium of photography.
