Yesterday I read in a Belgian newspaper that Icelandic tourism has gone through the roof and that this is not necessarily a good thing. To illustrate the statement the journalist had selected a couple of pictures of an overcrowded Blue Lagoon, the famous geothermal spa in the proximity of Reykjavik. Research learned that tourism now accounts for a whopping 34 percent of Iceland’s export revenue, nearly twice the amount that it did in 2010. After the economic collapse followed by a prolonged volcanic disruption, Iceland has certainly welcomed the influx of tourists but it has become too much of a good thing… It reminded me of a trip I made to that very same spa in September 2013. Cleary, things have changed and not necessarily for the better – Blue Lagoon, Iceland.
Beautiful, defiant and intense, Argentina seduces with its street-side tango, incredible foods, gaucho culture and welcoming people. Explore the mighty Iguazu Falls, take in the colors of Buenos Aires. Then head into nature to explore Peninsula Valdes, Torres del Paine National Park and the humbling Perito Moreno Glacier. Reaching the end of the world at Ushuaia is just the tip of the iceberg of an incredible country. Argentina is one formidable cocktail of wanderlust!
"Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them."
I just like to take pictures, I just push the button. I never worked in the darkroom, I never studied photography or journalism; I’m just a passionate photographer.
