Feature / Is(not) / Arnes by Jan Brykczynski

A small community of farmers who have chosen to raise sheep only. The people live off the land, as Icelanders have for hundreds of years. Far from bright lights and big cities, people in the Árnes region live surrounded by steep mountains and waves crashing on the shore. In the Árnes region, 38 people live in 15 houses all year round. There are more than 2700 sheep in the whole area.
