Björn Lexius is a wedding photographer from the port city of Hamburg, in the north of Germany. We had his attention for 5 minutes to ask a few questions and find out more about his work.
WUN: So, for those who don’t know you, who is Björn Lexius?
Björn: My name is Björn Lexius and I’m from Germany, I’m old, I’m vegan, I love punk rock, tattoos and cycling and shoot mainly weddings with my friend Jesse, under the name of Hafenliebe, which is the german word for harbour love. For us this is the connection to our hometown, the seaport of Hamburg. For Swedish people, it is pretty much comparable to Gothenburg.
We have been shooting weddings together internationally for about three and half years now, but I have been shooting weddings on my own now for about six years, I think. Besides that, I do a lot of portrait work and cycling events, mostly in the fixed-gear cycling scene (bikes with no gears, editors remark).
