2015-06-03 The walls of the National Museum of Natural History, part of the internationally renowned Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC, will, from the start of July onwards, be graced by a show consisting of more than 40 large format metal prints from veteran Hasselblad photographer Feodor Pitcairn.
Primordial Landscapes: Iceland Revealed, opens in the Special Exhibits Hall (near the Mammals Hall), and runs until April 2017. Feo’s work, accompanied by poems from Ari Trausti Guðmundsson, pays homage to a land of fire, ice, hardy life and natural beauty.
“I’m delighted that the museum has give me this opportunity,” says Feo, who used his much-loved digital Hasselblads to produce all of the exquisite images for the show. “It’s going to be hung in the area that gets the highest traffic, and it will be seen by a lot of people since the annual number of visitors to the museum exceeds six million.”
