Photographer's Note

With the mountain at its back and otherwise surrounded by the sea, Henningsvær is one of the most prominent fishing villages in Lofoten. The islands were not connected to the rest of Lofoten by bridges until 1981, a fact that probably helped save the community from the contemporary style of architecture with its preference for concrete blocks, that otherwise left its mark on just about all other Norwegian towns and villages in the 60’s and 70’s.
