Do you have old photographs? Silent Flashes is a creative new initiative to preserve, identify, and utilize old pictures to explore the Icelandic immigrant experience in North America and celebrate the rich photographic heritage of Icelandic immigrants - including the work of Icelandic photographers in both Canada and the US. Based on the expanding photograph archive at the Eyrarbakki Icelandic Heritage Centre, this project was officially launched in 2004 with the opening of the Silent Flashes exhibit at Hofsos, Iceland. A book and documentary, also both entitled Silent Flashes, are now in the works.
The Eyrarbakki Icelandic Heritage Centre houses a unique collection of documents, manuscripts, books, genealogical resources, photographs, and artifacts...

into the lives and times of your ancestors..."

celebrate Icelandic place names in North America - old or new.
