They speak Faroese. Road tunnels, roads, bridges allow the inhabitants of these 18 Danish islands to circulate there. The first human presence on this archipelago could date back to the 4th century. Nature continues to reign supreme. Sheep too, and their sheepfolds. The term “Faroe” could mean “Sheep Island”. There are these villages, in the hollow of the fjords numbed with silence. And these other houses, those of Man, or those of sheep, which cling to the mountains, and sometimes merge there. Each seems to endorse these volcanic rocks. I felt this deep need to freeze this authentic communion between the Faroese and its archipelago. And let her speak. – Gwenola Barbot
