Enjoy one of the venues for the Exposure Festival in Calgary.
Photographer Norman Geppert travels through Iceland with his mother Margret, capturing poignant images of the countryside and her sheep farming family. The show runs from Feb 5 to March 2.
Margret, my mother, wanted to go home to Iceland. It was October 2011. We stayed on the farm with Margret's sister and other relatives. We visited, ate tasty Icelandic food, drank the odd beer, and went hiking and exploring. From climbing mountains to helping to slaughter sheep, we drove the country clockwise. It was a trip. Documenting our travels and experiences with photographs was important to me for capturing the beauty of Iceland and for my mother. Margret has Alzheimer's.
