Exhibition of photographer Gunnlöð Jóna Rúnarsdóttir's portraits of mothers and daughters, where the mother is Icelandic but the father comes from another country. 

Along with the photos the models express their thaughts and reflections about what it is like growing up with two countries of origin, what it is like to have children of mixed race in Iceland and to BE of mixed race in Iceland. The portraits show beautiful diversity and unique bonds between mothers and daughters.
