The whaling station at Grytviken was the first to be established on the remote south Atlantic Island of South Georgia some one hundred years ago.
For the following sixty years Grytviken was home to a remarkable community, of which by far the largest part came from Norway. Some came for a short time; others lived much of their working lives in this extraordinary environment. What was life like for these intrepid men (and a few women), so far from home and so isolated from the outside world? The photographs in Grytviken Seen Through a Camera Lens provide some fascinating answers to that question. Many of these pictures have never been seen before. They are of remarkable quality, given the period and circumstances in which they were taken. They show the whalers at work and play, and the magnificent natural surroundings, which formed the background to their live.
