Føroyar

In August 2016, I flew over the ocean from Iceland to Amsterdam. It was an exceptional clear day. I looked out the window at one point and saw a group of islands far below. I could see the water beating against the rough cliffs. I remember that I stared at it for as long as possible. When the islands disappeared from my view I grabbed my phone. Despite it being on flight mode - and the fact that we were 30K feet up in the air - my phone's navigation was still working. The little blue dot told me that we had just passed the Faroe Islands. I was surprised. In my mind, the Faroe Islands were situated near Norway. I couldn't believe this little piece of paradise was so located so near to my own country. I decided I had to go there some day. What I didn't expect was that I would be visiting this archipelago twice within the next year, to visualize its stunning landscapes, but above all, portray the people who inhabit these unique islands. I discovered that they are the reason that I keep being drawn back to the Faroes. Their perseverance, generosity, kindness, and inventiveness is something I admire so much. I'd like to share my love for this country through a photo series. Takk fyri to Susanna, Levi, Óli, Anna, Poul, Jóannes, Jacklin, and many others who have made my stays unforgettable.
