The disparity between the rich and the poor was one of the initial subjects of my work. As the country expanded and gained wealth, the neighborhoods which were built in the 1950’s to house the poor were forgotten about. Though barely true, they have become known as the “ghettos” of Iceland, housing mostly immigrants now. These neighborhoods are reminiscent of the treatment of poor communities in America. The neglect towards these districts is possibly a denial of the hardship that this nation experienced as recently as a few decades earlier. Since there is a lack of interest in maintenance of these areas, the neighborhoods take on a unique style which breaks free from the trends of the times.
