Friðgeir Helgason Mood - Akureyri Art Museum

Friðgeir Helgason Mood Akureyri Art Museum, Ketilhús, September 9ᵗʰ - November 12ᵗʰ Friðgeir Helgason (born 1966) moved from Iceland to the USA at a young age. He studied cinematography at Los Angeles City College in Hollywood, and that is where photography first captured his mind. He has held numerous exhibitions both in the USA and in Iceland. “The photographs in this exhibition are shot in 2008-2013, on road trips in Iceland and Louisiana; the two areas most precious to me. The photos are all shot on Kodak Film and I printed them with an enlarger – the old-fashioned way. Nothing compares to driving aimlessly on the highway with the good old Pentax and a bunch of films in the trunk; stop and grab a bite to eat, meet the locals; take in the ambience and shoot photos when the opportunity arises. The aim of this exhibition is to grasp that mood.”

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
