Last Friday, September 9, the photography exhibition “Óskir íslenskra barna” – or “Icelandic children’s desires”. The photographer is Ásta Kristjánsdóttir, who led this project in cooperation with Barnaheill – Save the Children á Íslandi. “Óskir íslenskra barna” will be exhibited until October 20 at Safnahúsið.
The exhibition is based on the true stories of children who have experienced abuse, neglect, bullying or have lived in poverty. The images display the imaginary wishes of these same children. All works and all stories displayed in the exhibition are done by volunteers.
