Ingvar Högni Ragnarsson was born in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1981. He graduated from The Icelandic Academy of Visual Art in 2007.
Ingvar Högni Ragnarsson’s artistic practice is situated somewhere in between art photography and documentary – often with a documentary view as starting point and the artistic way of looking at things and creating images as the result.
His images are often emptied of human physical presence just showing the landscapes and sites constructed by humans in all its mess and glory. His work is not moralising or strictly political just posing some questions making us reflect on how we treat landscapes – nature’s as well as the urban landscape.
Alongside his aristic production Ingvar Högni runs an artist book store called Útúrdúr in Reykjavik and works as a more commercial photographer.
