Skaftfell welcomes visiting artist Karen Stentaford in a residency co-sponsored by Skaftfell and Ströndin Studio. Karen is an artist and educator from Atlantic Canada, based within the greater territory of Mi’kma’ki. A specialist in large format photography and wet plate technique, Karen works in a variety of photographic-based media, exploring notions of place, belonging, and memory in her work.
At Ströndin, Karen will be leading a 2.5-day workshop in collodion tintypes under the title “The Original Instant.” The workshop coincides with the annual World Wet Plate Day, on May 7. For more information on the workshop, see @strondinstudio.
Karen received an MA in Photography from the Edinburgh College of Art and holds the position of Assistant Professor in the Department of Fine Arts at Mount Allison University in Canada. She has been a frequent visitor to Iceland, most recently at the SÍM residency in Reykjavík.
