Grettir is a retired Faroese horse, who now lives with us on the farm.
There have always been horses on the Faroe Islands. The geographical remoteness in the North Atlantic Ocean forced the Faroese horse to adapt to its surroundings. Only the horses that could withstand the weather survived and the Faroe Islands became home to horse breed that was strong, hardy and agile. Today The Faroese horse breed is going from threatened to thriving, but there is still a long way to go for this horse to be safe from extinction.
In this series of Faroese Horse postcards, 25% of all profit will go to Felagið Føroysk Ross (an association to preserve the Faroese indigenous horse)
All postcards 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.
