Curatorial Talk – A Few Thoughts on Photography

Sunday March 27th at 2 p.m., we invite you to a curatorial talk about Hallgerður Hallgrímsdóttir‘s exhibition, A Few Thoughts on Photography – Vol. III., where curator Unnar Örn Auðarson will discuss Hallgerður’s artistic vision and the concept behind the exhibition.

At the exhibition, Hallgerður directs our gaze at photography as a medium, examining not just the reality in the photograph but the reality of the photograph. By utilizing the various possibilities of the medium, she goes beyond just capturing a subject in good lighting, involving instead everything that happens inside the camera, the darkroom or, lately, in digital processing. At every stage in this process, the production of the image can take a whole, new turn, as there is no correct way of creating a photograph and the camera has its own effect on the end result.

The exhibition is a part of the programme of The Icelandic Photo Festival 2022. The exhibition is supported in part by Myndstef.
