This is a question posed by German journalist and photographer Tina Bauer in her upcoming photo book Iceland – lovely home for German women, featuring German women who fulfilled their dream of making Iceland their home.
The text that accompanies the photographs, which is both in German and English, tells the story of these creative, nature-loving women, who explain why they want to live in Iceland and share their experiences with readers.
“The women are role models to me,” reveals the author. “These strong […] personalities who followed their hearts.” Bauer has also lived in Iceland for some time. “I was often asked why I was in Iceland and why so many German women live here.”
To publish her book, Bauer has launched a crowd fundraising project on startnext.de where readers can become a part of the project in helping to fund it. Every sponsor will be named in the book.
Bauer is planning to return to Iceland in late July to finalize her photo book by which time the project must be fully funded.
