ICELANDx207 is a multi-media project, by artist and photographer Justin Levesque, documenting Iceland's recent entry into the Maine waterfront and economy. At its core, the project is focused to create portraits of Icelanders in Maine, capture the revitalized and bustling International Marine Terminal (Portland, ME) and chronicle a nine day journey from Portland, ME to Reykjavík harbor aboard an Eimskip shipping vessel. The culmination of this project will be exhibited in conjunction with the 2016 Arctic Council meetings hosted by the Maine North Atlantic Development Office in Portland, Maine (Oct. 4-6, 2016).
