This Island Earth: A new exhibition at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography

This Island Earth promotional photo

This Island Earth is the title of a new exhibition that will be opened on January 20, 2018 at Reykjavík Museum of Photography. In this exhibition, five photographic artists living in Iceland turn their gaze towards nature. Since the beginning, landscape photography has been a leading force in the Icelandic photographic scene, and its key mission has been to promote Iceland internationally and to preserve Icelandic national identity.

The genre continues to play a crucial role in the photographic scene today. In This Island Earth, each artist´s approach is a highly personal one, which leads to a diversity in the composition and texture of the exhibited works yet parallels can be found. A common characteristic of the works, which include both photography and video, is that they all test our sense of reality in relation to nature and landscape imagery. The exhibition ends on May 6th 2018.

Contributing artists are: Stuart Richardson, Kristín Sigurðardóttir, Claudia Hausfeld, Pétur Thomsen og Hallgerður Hallgrímsdóttir. Curator: Katrín Elvarsdóttir.
