Opening August 18, 1-7pm
Facebook event

The Iceland Film Photography Association opens its annual members exhibition at Gallery Fold. This year, 11 guest artist photographers from Europe and North America will join 7 association members in the show. The invited artists were all residents of the SÍM artist residency who shared the IFPA community darkroom during the period of 2015-2018. The result of this collaboration promises to open the imagination about the possibilities of analog photography.

Among the works to be shown are images from handmade cameras and lenses, antique cameras and even cameraless photography, as well as handmade and digital prints from more conventional film cameras. Some of the prints have been made using traditional photographic processes, while others are the result of more experimental techniques, such as one piece which was developed in a solution made from Egil’s Pilsner!

The exhibitors: Alex Ómarsson (Iceland) Andrea Pinheiro (Canada) Anna Niskanen (Finland) Ásgeir Ásgeirsson (Iceland) Barbara Reimer (Canada) Chris Reilly (USA) James Tómas Long (Iceland) Karen Stentaford (Canada) Karen Zalamea (Canada) Katri Naukkarinen (Finland) Laura Andrés Esteban (Iceland) Laura Koskinen Bennett (USA) Laura Valentino (Iceland) Lee Henderson (Canada) Magnús Karl Magnússon (Iceland) Melanie Kathryn King (UK) Miriam Frank (Germany) Ýrsa Roca Fannberg (Iceland)
