The photo exhibition ‘Ocean Fishing — Six Trips on the North Atlantic’ featuring about 30 photos from my book ‘Images of Fishermen: the North Atlantic’. kicked off at the National Maritime Museum in Stockholm in 2008. The exhibition continued to Nordatlantens Brygge in Copenhagen in 2009 as well as to Fiskeri- og Søfartsmuseet in Esbjerg, followed in 2010 by Víkin — Sjóminjasafnið, in Reykjavík. The exhibition was also held in Greenland, at the Katuaq — Grønlands Kulturhus and the Nordic House in the Faroe Islands.
A description of the book reads: "Images of Fishermen is a coffeetable book that presents, in compelling language, the reality of North Atlantic fisheries as seen through a photographer’s lens and may as well be the first book on the market to cover commercial fishing this comprehensively using photojournalism in conjunction with an expert treatise. Through six photo essays, photographer Maria Olsen delivers a feast of 200 amazing pictures, documenting diverse fishing trips while covering several fishing methods including benthic and midwater trawling, pair trawling, gillnetting, and longlining."
