Things Not Seen

Djúpavík Factory, Iceland

I visited Djúpavík with Daniel Bergmann to photograph the museum herring factory with the iPhone and Hipstamatic. In 1934, during a period of just one year this vast factory was built that was the envy of producers all over Europe. The production line was set in motion in 1935 when the first boats sailed into the bay with their holds full of herring. Catches were almost unlimited, bringing a high turnover that led to rapid success. It was the largest concrete building in Iceland at the time. It still stands today, 90m long on three levels with a capacity of 5,600 tons. It was finally closed in 1954.
