Skotið 05.04.2018 to 29.05.2018


Hanna Siv Bjarnardóttir visited a number of senior citizens living in Stokkseyri – a small town on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. In just a short window of time, she learned all sorts of things about the people living there with their homes reflecting their owners personalities and the stories of their lives.

People tend to collect furniture and all sorts of paraphernalia throughout their lives; some of the things are treasured keepsakes while others are merely functional and thrown away after they have served their purpose.

“In small communities like Stokkseyri, everybody knows each other and each other's business too. I got to know all the people I visited and I visited a few. Visiting them was an experience in itself, especially after having imagined over the years what their homes would be like. More often than not the reality was completely different from what I had envisaged.”   -Hanna Siv Bjarnardóttir

Hanna Siv Bjarnardóttir graduated from the Icelandic School of Photography in January 2017. Home is her first official exhibition. She has also installed a retrospective of her works at the Kaffigott cafe in Stokkseyri in addition to both the group and graduation exhibition at the Icelandic School of Photography.
