In the exhibition Distance and Propinquity. Contemporary Icelandic Photography, we hear the voices of some of those who have made their mark on contemporary Icelandic photography over the past two decades. Visitors are invited to “see more“ and to consider what happens when one looks at photographs for a long time. The photographs have been selected on the grounds that each individual image speaks in its own way to our time. Some depict reality in an uncompromising manner, while others lead us into confusion. All make us think about current affairs and take a stance regarding life and the society of which we, and they, are a part.
The exhibition is a collaboration between the museum and FÍSL (The association of Icelandic contemporary photographers).
