Highland Sheep Herding / " fjalli"

A photography exhibition at Heklusetur on Leirubakki
We, Sigrn Kristjnsdttir and Plmi Bjarnason, have worked together on photography since 2004.
For the last four autumns we followed shepherds up on the mountains and into Landmannaafrtt. We spent one week in the highlands and took photographs of the shepherds herding their flock of sheep, their surroundings and their day to day life. The photos exhibited here are the fruits from these trips
The exhibition is in three parts; the core of it are portraits of the shepherds, the second part demonstrates the daily life up on the mountains and last but not least are photos of the landscape surrounding the shepherds during their travels when herding their flock.
We would like to thank the shepherds for their warm welcome, their patience and positive manners towards us.
It is our sincere hope that this exhibitions will give you an insight into the world of the shepherds when up on highlands and the harsh forces of nature they have to endure.
The Iceland Touring Association purchased some of the photographs and exhibit in their cabin in Landmannalaugar.
All of the photographs are printed with Epson Stylus Pro 3800 on PermaJet paper and framed by Rammastd, rmla 20, Reykjavk.
This exhibition was open during the summer 2011.
