HRAFN JÓNSSON (KRUMMI)
In reality, we are always limited by something. It is within these limitations that we go about our everyday lives. Each day we attempt to reach an agreement on how we meander within these limitations. Krummi’s limitations are various but by and large stem from his disability. The project SkRöLt is a path he stumbled upon, it is both physical and hypothetical, and on this path, he works within and beyond his limitations. He propels himself forward by negotiating an ever-changing agreement on how and what he is able to photograph. The title of this project translates into “I rattle along”, whichderived from Krummi’s unconventional walking pattern and it is how he refers to his journey.
Hrafn Jónsson (Krummi) (b. 1990,Reykjavik) is an Icelandic photographer who lives and works in Reykjavik. IIn January 2021 he graduated from Ljósmyndaskólinn. By adhering to the seemingly simple and straightforward medium most of us engage with every day, Krummi is able to push himself forward and engage with his environment. He rattles on, maneuvering through the obstacle course of his everyday life with his unconventional walking pattern – a clumsy flaneur. Krummi was a teenager when he became disabled. Through his relationship with the photographic medium he has come to see that whether he is able, less able, more able or disabled, he is always, in some way, able. Krummi has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, most recently at the Icelandic Photo Festival in January 2022 and the Futures Nordic exhibition at the Copenhagen Photo Festival in 2021. In 2021, Krummi was selected as one of five Futures Nordic Talents by the Copenhagen Photo Festival.
