“I wasn’t sure what to expect. I thought every place on this island had been photographed before. It feels like I’ve seen it all, will it really get tme the way I hope it will?” Some of the thoughts Björn had the days before he flew to Iceland in June/July to document the anti-whaling “Whaler Watching” campaign of non-profit organization “Hard To Port”. He just published the full documentation on that on his website: http://www.bjoernlexius.com/hard-to-port-whaler-watching-2016/. You might know that he didn’t just work on this but also photographed this session with this Indian couple from the US. So, let’s listen to what has to say about this trip…

Like you already read, I didn’t really know what will wait for me in Iceland. I wasn’t sure how documenting the whaling activities will affect me, if the nature will stun me as I was hoping it would. While I was able to keep myself cool about the whalers, the nature really got a hold of me. A lot. Even though we didn’t see as much of it as we were busy keeping an eye on the Icelandic whale hunt, we still managed to see a bit of it, and this was enough to make sure I knew I will have to return to Iceland. I mean, it seems to be the most visited destinations for weddings in the moment, so chances are someone will book us to shoot their wedding over there, right? We can go hiking and whale watching and visit the ice and not care about crashed planes. This place has so many amazing things to offer, let’s explore it together.

Writing the above paragraph yet feels weird as I witnessed the masses of tourists on Iceland. They are everywhere. And spying on some of them you really begin to question if they actually this place or just wanna check it off their list, at least the ones who travel to sightseeing places in coaches, have ten minutes to take a pee, take a photo and buy some souvenir. As so often in today’s society we’re all part of the problem, Iceland seems overrun and hopefully will be able to cope with it. Nature in Iceland is very fragile and it takes forever for things to re-grow to their former beauty. And yes, it is beautiful. When you’re in a car and driving along the long and sometimes still empty roads you’re excited about what’s waiting for you after the next turn. And just when you think you’ve seen it all, Iceland will prove you wrong with a more stunning view, an even bigger waterfall, the perfect view on an ice-blue fjord or some humpback whale just coming up next to your boat.

I could go on and on and on but I’m sure you all just want to check these photos. We really hope you will enjoy them, and remember, don’t forget to get in touch with us if you wanna get married somewhere cool.
