Icelandic photographer Klaengur Gunnarsson opened his exhibition “Formstaklingar” (a combination of the words “form” and “individuals”) in the Reykjavík Museum of Photography this week, displaying travel photos, mainly from Asia and South America.
“Formstaklingar” is about form, shadows, lines and the moment, the artist explained.
“Photography is a big part of my life as it has been for the past four years. I don’t see myself without the camera, without thinking about photographing or without using the eye in an artistic and demanding way,” Gunnarsson said in a press release.
“When I don’t have a camera with me, I take pictures with my eye and keep them in a good place in my mind where I can enjoy them whenever I want to and then I don’t have to be disappointed about not having had my camera.”
“To me, photography is about looking at and observing how daylight falls on a subject, reach a beautiful grayscale or catch the right moment, either with a camera or the eye,” the artist concluded.
“Formstaklingar” will be on display until September 23.
