Photographer's Note

Nussfjord, located on Flakstadøy on the Lofoten islands is one of Norway's best preserved fishing villages. Lying at the end of a narrow road, protected by steep mountains and a natural harbor much of the village has been turned in to a open air museum with traditional rorbuer (fishermen huts), a smithy and a working boat shed all open for visitors. While tourists flock there in their thousands in the summer month, the month of february and march see no tourists at all and the locals still live from fishing (mainly cod) that is then dried on wooden stacks around the village. The dried cod,known as Bacalao, is then sold to Italiy, Spain, Portugal or Africa.
