In recent months I’ve been shooting mostly on medium format film – and while I love everything about the format (well, apart from the costs) I missed blasting through a roll of film without thinking too much. So on my last trip I’ve forced myself to also use my beloved Contax T3 more again while shooting on the streets of Reykjavík.
And while we are at it, here are some of my favorite places: coffee at Bismút, Kaffihús Vesturbæjar and Reykjavik Roasters with its two branches Brautarholt (bigger) and Kárastígur (smaller). Food at Hlemmur Mathöll (a food hall with many restaurants), Gló and Hamborgarabúlla Tómasar. Drinks at Kaffibarinn. And art at BERG Contemporary, Gallery Port and The Marshall House. But here’s my top recommendation: just check out the magazine Grapevine, it’s the best guide for Reykjavík.
