Iceland: an interview with Hallgerður Hallgrímsdóttir

Hallgerður Hallgrímsdóttir is an Icelandic photographer, toying with the language of her medium, disrupting perceptions of established Icelandic photography and drawing attention to everyday non-events.  We meet in her apartment, a few weeks before she is due to give birth, to discuss a practice that takes joy in the often unnoticed moments of her island’s landscapes.
