Gissur Guðjónsson│Site

The series is an exploration of unidentified places where traces of human existence have gathered.

Gissur Guðjónsson - Svæði/Sites
Gissur Guðjónsson Site

Gissur uses this material and its forms to make his own landscape. Shaping it by currupting the viewers perspective using the methodology of photomapping while arranging the photos together. The sites of Gissur‘s photographs seem to have – by pure coincidence – become a temporary haven for things people no longer see use for. Curiosity and Gissur’s sincere interest of things that have lost their usability shines through in this work, as well as being the motivational force behind the making of it.

Gissur Guðjónsson is an Icelandic photographer based in Selfoss, born 1991. Gissur studied photography in Ljósmyndaskólinn –The School of Photography, and graduated from there in January 2020.
