The Faroe Islands
The Faroe Islands are a remote, enticing archipelago of 18 massive volcanic basalt rocks thrusting skyward through the North Atlantic Ocean, halfway between Norway and Iceland.
Originally settled by Norwegian Vikings in the ninth and 10th centuries and now an autonomous outpost of the Kingdom of Denmark, the destination is a paradise for hikers, mountain climbers, and sheep.

Photographer / Saul Leiter
Saul Leiter was an American artist and early pioneer of color photography. With distinctive imagery suffused with painterly qualities, he is often grouped with other photographers of the New York School such as Richard Avedon, Weegee, and Diane Arbus. His work, however, departs dramatically with that group in regard to his subject matter—an oblique mélange of New York’s streets, architecture, and inhabitants.
