Independent Mothers - Debut Exhibition in Akureyri, Iceland

Added on by Annie Ling.

I had dreamed not long ago that I would find the ideal venue in Iceland to debut this personal project, on June 19th, 2015, the 100th anniversary date of Women's Suffrage in Iceland, when a number of women in the country were granted voting rights for the first time.

With utmost respect and gratitude for all the single mothers who welcomed me into their families and lives, sharing stories over meals and coffee, your generosity of spirit and nurture got me through during the dark winter months of Skammdegi this winter in Ólafsfjörður, Iceland.

Also, a special thanks to Listhús í Fjallabyggð in Ólafsfjörður and the fantastic Mjólkurbúðin Gallery... I could not have asked for better enablers and supporters of this work.

So, it is with great pleasure I say... the dream has been realized! And it's damn good to be back. More to come... and be sure to check back in a few days when the series will be up online. If you enjoyed following my experience of short winter days (see: New Yorker), you can now follow on Instagram as I share glimpses of long summer days touring Iceland!

Look for Awhereness in the latest issue of Incandescent, a color film zine published by Pine Island Press, Portland Oregon. It is now available for purchase online, in these shops, and at the LA Zine Fest in a couple weeks! Don't miss the series on view in the Take Ten exhibition along with the work of nine other women photographers at ICP's Rita K. Hillman Education Gallery in New York City.

Two exhibition openings tomorrow: New York City / Ólafsfjörður
