Steypa Photograpy Exhibition in Ólafsvík

Steypa Photography will hold an exhibition in the town of Ólafsvík, West Iceland, June 1-August 31. This is the fourth Steypa exhibition, but the three previous ones were held in Djúpavík.

The goal of the exhibition is to offer a different view of Iceland, one that is in contrast to conventional landscape photos. For this purpose, nine photographers from Iceland and abroad bring their works to Ólafsvík to show their personal Iceland.

The building in which the photographs are exhibited used to store salt, which was used for making salted cod. Until recently, the building housed the region’s Marine Museum.

This year’s photographers are Anna Grevenitis (USA), Christel Thomsen (DK), Claus Sterneck (IS, GER), Elli Thor (IS), Emilie Dalum (IS, DK), Gulli Már (IS), Johanna Maria Fritz (DE), Jutta Wittmann (A) and Rúnar Gunnarsson (IS).
