German based photographer Philipp Frerich discovers the raw beauty of the Faroe Islands whilst portraying an important message about respecting our planet through his powerful words. 


Words & Photography: Philipp Frerich

"In times like these, with a civilisation so powerful, it's easy to lose our humbleness and respect towards nature. But I think it's important we don't. The fact that we are in this position, to decide over the destiny of so many living beings on this planet doesn't mean it's our right to do so. This planet is the reason we are here, it's the only one we have. Hiking through the dramatic Faroese landscapes made me realise how small we are and witnessing nature's incredible power, beauty, and vulnerability in a place like the Faroe Islands makes you appreciate how special it all is."
