In the heart of the North Atlantic, the Faroe Islands have long been known for their rich cultural heritage and deeply rooted traditions. However, winds of change are sweeping across this archipelago.

“Skopunarfjørður” explores the intricate dance between tradition and progress. The construction of tunnels that weave through t the Faroe Islands signifies a noteworthy departure from the islanders' traditional way of life.  These infrastructure changes let the Faroese get closer together than ever before, but along comes an everlasting impact on society and culture.


 Photo Essay: ATH

Athens is a remarkable city, offering an abundance of culture and timeless beauty. However, it also has another, less glamorous side. This side might appear a bit rougher and off the beaten tourist paths, but it is nonetheless ubiquitous. It boldly adorns the rooftops of the city, permeates the remotest corners, and winds its way through the subway tunnels.

The city has been shaped and molded by countless people to become what it is today. It's not just about giving space to one's own creativity, but rather about acting freely and reclaiming the right to participate in shaping public space.


    Rolling city 

    Despite economic and geographical differences, European countries share a common trend of a growing freight transport sector, primarily on roads. This growth is not solely attributed to evolving production processes in industries, relying on quick and small-scale deliveries ("just in time"). Instead, both national and European-level policies favor road transport over rail.

    In Germany alone, around 100,000 truck drivers search for parking spaces and overnight accommodations every evening. However, only about 70,000 drivers are successful in finding a spot for the night. The Rolling City project aims to provide insight into the lives of those residing in the small settlements that vanish when the sun rises.
