Exhibitions project with Reykjavik Photography Museum

One part of our trip to Iceland that will hopefully bring about some longer term opportunities was our visit to the Reykjavik Photography Museum. We saw an excellent exhibition there, This Island Earth (named after a 1950s science fiction film) and were given a talk about it by one of the workers in the museum, Hlin. We also spoke to Kristin Hauksdottir, who told us about the history and role of the museum and its invaluable archive of photographs of Iceland over many years, as well as its role in promoting contemporary photography.

As a result of this visit we are now in discussions with the museum and planning an exchange exhibition where photographers from Iceland will show their work in Cheltenham, and students from BA Photography will show work at the museum. We will post more news on this as plans move ahead.
