Lives at Sea : Fram

My grandfather was a fisherman and I remember those stories he has told to us since we were kids. Facing the waves at large, longing the coasts of Iceland…
I’m pretty sure he has had a large influence on some of the passions I have today. Someone would just have to hear some of the things we would want to do, or to see us listen to him talking about his memories, to notice our gaze almost as emotional than his.

His life makes me shiver of wonder and fright, it makes me think about those lives that where made or undone by the seas.


This is a truly legendary ship. Fram (Forward) was the ship used by the explorers Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen. The latter became the first man to reach the South pole thanks to this ship.
