The isle of Maybe


These last few months, I was searching for a modern hermit who lives close to nature. This hermit I found at Koltur (one of the Faroe Islands). The only inhabitants of this island are Bjørn and his wife Lukka. A long time ago the island was a home for more than 50 people. When the fishing industry began to prosper at the beginning of the 20thcentury, the inhabitants left the small villages and travelled to Streymoy, the main island, in search of a better life. Today, all of the manual labour of this once thriving community is performed by one single man: Bjørn.
