Faroese Fine Art Print "Elias"
Elias is the newest member of our flower crown farm family. He lives with farmer Harriet & her family at Hanusarstova, together with all of the other animals including sheep, chickens, dogs and the barn cat Zoe. His mother didn't want him, so the farm family took him in and he now has his very own heated house right next to the chickens, gets to roam wherever he wants and gets fed warm bottled milk five times a day.
The poster Elias is dedicated to my grandfather who taught me everything I need to know about farming - to talk to the animals as if they understand every word I'm saying, to handle them gently and with care, to be patient and respectful towards them in every way. Instead of going to kindergarten, I grew up following my grandfather around on his farm - nature was my playground and the sheep were my friends. Without the knowledge I learned from my grandfather when I was just a young child I wouldn't have been able to create this artwork.
The pictures are all taken and edited by farmer Harriet Olafsdóttir.
All posters will be printed and shipped from The Faroe Islands.
Showing the beauty of The Faroe Islands through my creativity has always been a dream of mine.
Living in this place surrounded by harsh seas, strong winds and dark winters photography started as a way to look for beauty in everything. Growing up in a small town as a farmers daughter, animals have always been close to my heart. Through this series I want to show the natural beauty and soul of these majestic creatures.
