Photos from Iceland Exhibited Abroad

The work of French photographer Pascal Fellonneau is currently being exhibited at the Athens Photo Festival, which opened yesterday in the Hellenic Center for Photography, within the context of “Crossroads / Thematic program.”

The festival, running through December 6, portrays the work of 16 artists from 12 countries. The Hellenic Center for Photography is located on Tsami Karatasou 15 in Athens, Greece.

Yesterday, an exhibition of photographs from Iceland also opened in Eppelheim near Heidelberg in Germany, displaying the work of German photographers Claus Sterneck and Tina Bauer.

The exhibition is entitled “The future is bright like a Sun-Day – Details and Portraits” and consists of more detailed photographs than often shown of Iceland.

“Iceland is more than fascinating landscapes—you can see such pictures on many postcards and in several picture books,” explain the artists in a press release.

“We want to call attention to details, the small and hidden secrets and the daily life of Icelanders on this rough island—now, particularly rough because of the economical crisis,” they add.

Sound clips, interviews with Icelanders and texts complement the exhibition.

This is Sterneck and Bauer’s second joint exhibition. In July and August this year, they exhibited their work in the old herring factory in Djúpavík in Iceland’s West Fjords.

Their exhibition in Eppelheim is in the local library on Jahnstrasse 1. It ends in late January 2010.

A related event, an audio-visual presentation about Iceland by Stefan Erdmann, will take place in the Rudolf-Wild-Halle in Eppelheim on November 15 at 7 pm.
