Berglind Rögnvaldsdóttir is a contemporary artist who works mainly within photography. Berglind was born in 1985 in Reykjavik,  and was  raised in Iceland. In the summer of 2018 Berglind graduated Bilder Nordic school of photography with a degree in photography and storytelling. Since graduating she has exhibited in big art festivals in Oslo; Collective Fashion Art in 2018 and Fusion Oslo in 2019 and 2021. In 2020 she was chosen for Create Magazine issue #20 Womens Edition. 

Berglind’s work is characterised by a feminine, sometimes dreamlike feel, usually informed by the female gaze approach. Her approach is very much centred around her journey, its a reflection of who she is at any given moment whilst experiencing life and uncovering her own identity. Her works are often intended to challenge the internal patriarchy and the way people encounter visual representation of women. Berglind has previously tackled issues such as the female nipple, the #metoo campaign, medias obsession with sexualizing the female body and motherhood.

Being a native Icelander she has a strong attachment and deeply rooted respect for nature, working directly with Mother Earth as a way to confront gender and sexuality politics, it serves as a metaphor to the idea of what is natural.
