Reykjavik Museum of Photography


Reflecting the contemporary, while archiving the past – this is Reykjavík's home of photography.

Reykjavík's main photography museum offers an ongoing programme of contemporary and historical exhibitions, and an onscreen archive of thousands of images from the past. New work from Iceland and abroad reflects where photography is now, while extensive archives from 1860–2000 give an insight into Iceland's changing culture and society over more than a century.
