Foreword by David Rosenberg

Essay by Guðbjörg R. Jóhannesdóttir.


Sense of Place consists of assembled and layered photographs of the artists homeland Iceland. The composite, textured landscapes are a re-creation of places and scenes that suggest the imperfections of memory as well as the interplay of effects between man and nature. Utilizing human fingerprint patterns in the work also evokes the uniqueness of our connection with nature and our impressions upon it.
