Arni Haraldsson has exhibited his photographic work nationally and internationally for the past eighteen years. Upcoming exhibitions include festival Photoespana at the Museu Berardo in Lisbon, Portugal. Last year Mr. Haraldsson did a half-year residency in London, England, and exhibited in EAST International in Norwich, England. Much of his work has concerned the lost aspirations of the utopian principles of Modernism, in terms of the design and social life of the city. As well, he has concentrated on various urban spaces and peripheral suburban landscapes in transition. His work poses architecture and landscape as emblematic of larger social forces, and as a symbolic system instrumental in the formation of human relations.
These works are excerpts from larger series or bodies of work that, although directly unrelated, form part of an ongoing exploration or project concerning urban spaces and modernism, in general.
