EXPOSURES captures the moods and experiences of fans and artists, both onstage and off.
Kate Killet continued her filmic world tour at this year's Iceland Airwaves festival. Like she tends to, she got some great shots of Canadian bands enjoying their new surroundings, but this time she also got a great taste of Iceland's music scene, from feminist art rap collectives to legendary Bjork cronies. And hey, along the way she also caught the very last show by the already-missed pop provocateurs The Knife. Check out the otherworldly, psychedelic photos below.

It's hard to get away from the music at Iceland Airwaves. Didn't catch the name of this band, just went to have dinner and they were preforming on the bar.
