I love looking at photographs. Whether they be at a gallery, in a magazine or just old family photos, count me in. So I was pleased to read about the grand opening of The Big Wednesday Gallery, a new addition to The Kona Gallery and Photojournalism Center. Last night the grand opening featured the work of Thorvaldur Örn Kristmundsson, a photojournalist from Iceland. Kristmundsson experiments with the concept of brand in his show, “Nature Is Brand”.
Scott Mc Kiernan, owner of The Kona Gallery, noted that Kristmundsson “placed a manmade symbol of industrialization in southern Iceland’s tundra to show one of the world’s most recognized brands through nature’s perspective.” Curious what one of the world’s most recognized brands is? Go see the show!
