Reykjavík Museum of Photography Exhibition
Kvosin 1986 & 2011

Kvosin 1986   2011

Guðmundur Ingólfsson is one of the pillars of Icelandic photography today. The exhibition Kvosin 1986 & 2011, a collaboration between the Reykjavík Museum of Photography and the Reykjavík City Museum, consists of photographs, taken 25 years apart.

Guðmundur started the project in 1986, on the occasion of the bicentenary of Reykjavík, which fuelled his interest in documenting the old town, following in the footsteps of his predecessors Sigfús Eymundsson and Magnús Ólafsson, who documented the Kvosin district a hundred years earlier.

The photographs clearly show the changes that have taken place in downtown Reykjavík; buildings have disappeared, new ones have been built, streets and landmarks have changed.

On display until May 12.
