Danish-American actor and artist Viggo Mortensen will hold an exhibition of his photographs, entitled “Skovbo” at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography between May 31 and August 31.
Skovbo means “the one who lives in the forest” in Danish. The exhibition is wrapped around the concept of nature, but the main focus is on trees.
Mortensen became world-famous as an actor for his role as Aragon in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy by Peter Jackson. He is also a painter, photographer and a poet.
Mortensen’s publication company recently published a collection of his photos, poets and paintings about trees and nature. The book will be sold at the exhibition.
