The first annual Photography Days (Ljósmyndadagar) festival, held by the Reykjavík Museum of Photography and the Association of Icelandic Contemporary Photographers, will take place in Iceland’s capital February 9-12.
Photo exhibitions will open around the city center, photographs will be analyzed at the National Museum of Iceland and five photo walks will be organized in the city’s largest districts, among other events.
The museums will also participate in Museum Night, held in conjunction with the Reykjavík Winter Lights Festival, February 9-12.
Among items on the program is “the wondrous world of lego” at Reykjavík City Hall where people can drop in and play, build and design with lego bricks from Friday morning to Sunday afternoon (weekend opening hours are 1-5 pm).
At the festival’s opening today, a white beam of light will stream out of the spire of the church Fríkirkjan by the Reykjavík Pond as part of an installation by Ragnheiður Harpa Leifsdóttir called “Pharos”, which will shine around the clock for three days.
