In April 2018 I had the opportunity to travel back to my favourite place on earth. A wild, little group of 18 islands in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. Tucked away half way between Scotland and Iceland, not even a dot on the world map. The Faroe Islands.
I spent a week-long exploring the unknown places and creating short, cinematic episodes about my exploration of these locations with my camera.
What follows are thoughts, impression, words and ideas the Faroe Islands have left on me. Little words are needed for the Faroe Islands… and so I will mostly let the images speak for themselves.
This was my third visit to this place. As small and unimportant as they may seem, the islands have endless exploring to be done. There’s something special about this place that I still can’t quite put in words.
Maybe it was the remoteness, the unique culture, the dramatic landscapes or the harsh, unforgiving weather… maybe just a healthy mix of all of it. The Faroe Islands always leave me wanting for more. Even after this third visit, I’ve been considering a return trip.
Maybe it’s just the small size of this place. A place that, ultimately, I could explore every inch of and know inside out. If I really wanted.
And so I set out to explore the places I hadn’t been to. Places I hadn’t previously seen photos of. Places that I had marked with a little X after hours of exploring on satellite images, terrain maps… you name it.
Yes, one could say I’m rather obsessed with this place. In a good way. I hope.
The beauty of this place truly is just as much in the details as it is in the bigger picture.
Thanks for watching. I hope you enjoyed the episodes and images and that I have inspired you to go on your own little adventure.
