Photography by Icelandic women: A 150 year perspective

  • Photo courtesy of Reykjavík Museum of Photography.

From a Different Angle presents photographic works from 1872–2013 by 34 women, all of whom have worked as photographers in Iceland, the majority professionally, a few as amateurs. The exhibition is the fruit of two years of research by photographer and curator Katrín Elvarsdóttir.

The photographs are presented in three categories: landscape/nature, family/home life, and portraits/social life. A joint project of the National Museum of Iceland and the Reykjavík Museum of Photography (recently voted by The Guardian as one of the 10 best free museums in Europe), the exhibition is shown in two parts at both museums. 

Until May 11.
