“Pictures – And Their Sounds” on Display in Djúpavík

German photographer Claus Sterneck is currently exhibiting his photographs in the old Herring Factory in Djúpavík, a remote village on the eastern West Fjords peninsula. However, it is not just an ordinary photo exhibition because visitors can also listen to the pictures.

“A picture can be viewed in many ways – aesthetically, analytically or emotionally. But a picture can also transport you to a different place, right to the moment in time that was captured, and allow you experience it firsthand,” describes the artist on his website.

The installation includes a table, two books with 31 pictures and two CD players with headphones. Visitors can flip through the books and then listen to the sounds of each picture. The audio clip, which is ten to 30-seconds long, was recorded immediately after the picture was taken.

The exhibition runs through August 31.
