Justin Levesque is a photographer and podcaster from Portland who is documenting Maine's new connection to Iceland.

The company Eimskip is now shipping between Iceland and Portland's International Marine Terminal. Levesque won a grant through the Maine Arts Commission to ride to Iceland on one of the container ships and document the process.

Levesque's interest in Iceland was piqued by the country's pop chanteuse/actress Bjork. And, yes, he did get to meet her.

He's compiling the photos and talks on his website ICELANDx207 and photos will be displayed at a couple of galleries.

 

*CORRECTION: 8:26 PM on 11/10/15 an earlier version of this article said Levesque was from Biddeford. Biddeford is where he grew up.
