Anna Grevenitis (USA, shows in Hveragerði)
Anna Grevenitis (b.1974 in Colmar, France). After devoting most of her formative years to language and literature, earning two Master’s degrees in English and American Literature and teaching literature and composition on CUNY campuses around New York City, French-born Anna Grevenitis embarked on her path to photography twelve years ago. Apart from a few basic classes that got her started, she taught herself the art. She uses her camera to search for meaning in her daily introspection. Day after day, creating images of her daughter and son, of people and places in her life, she is observing everything more closely and reflecting on it all; she is creating meaning.
Her series “A place for all things” was exhibited at STEYPA in Ólafsvik, Iceland in the summer of 2016. This year in her new series “Crane photobomb”, Anna tackles the implications of booming tourism in Iceland – specifically on Reykjavík’s urban vistas.
