We are extremely excited to present Ómur – Photograph’s from the frozen North, by Benjamin Hardman. Benjamin is an Australian photographer residing in Iceland. Five years ago, he embarked on his first photographic mission in an Arctic winter climate. Ever since, Benjamin’s passion for the cold has grown to lead him in search of the North’s most obscure landscapes
Within the still imagery of Ómur, Benjamin focuses on the shape, texture and anatomy of the Arctic and Sub-Arctic regions, both in close detail and broad scale to emphasize the other-worldly and sublime elements found in this part of the world.
'Ómur' - An Icelandic word defining a reverberated yet softly fading echo, describes the depicted landscapes as they undergo constant transformation amidst the ever-changing seasons of the North. Many of these images are the last remaining echo of formations that have eroded, melted, transitioned and perished since the time of their documentation.
Join us from 7.30pm on Thursday 23rd August for the private view of this stunning exhibition.
As always entrance is free and drinks will be provided. See you there!
