Gissur Guðjónsson: Svæði / Site
20 August–16 October
The series is an exploration of unidentified places where traces of human existence have gathered.
Gissur uses this material and its forms to make his own landscape. Shaping it by corrupting the viewer‘s perspective using the methodology of photomapping while arranging the photos together. The sites Gissur photographs seem to have by pure coincidence become a temporary haven for things people no longer see a use for. Curiosity and Gissur’s sincere interest in things that have lost their usability shines through in this work, as was the motivational force behind the making of this work.
Gissur Guðjónsson is an Icelandic photographer based in Selfoss, born in 1991. Gissur studied photography in Ljósmyndaskólinn and graduated from there in January 2020.
