Anna Elín Svavarsdóttir: Reunion
August 21–October 31
“One of my objectives in image creation is to make use of the immediate environment, viewed from different angles. Things within the environment are constantly changing, taking on different purposes depending on when and how you look at them.” (Anna Elín Svavarsdóttir, 2017).
After Anna Elín’s death, her family was inspired to exhibit some of her work, reflecting her career as an artistic photographer. She had a keen eye for aesthetics and photographed a variety of motifs.
Anna Elín graduated as a photographer in 1987. She studied with both Leifur Þorsteinsson and Guðmundur Ingólfsson. After graduating, she worked at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography from 1987-1989 and as head of the photography department from 1994-1998.
Afterwards, she began her career as a self-employed photographer and worked, among other things, as a film-set photographer. In 2011, she founded the company Lífssaga, specializing in creating photographic memoirs.
Among the various group exhibitions and photography projects she participated in, is the University of Iceland’s Architecture Photography Competition, where her work, which is now in the ownership of the University of Iceland, won first prize.
