Arved Fuchs and Peter Sandmeyer tell pictorially of the adventure of their winter voyage on the shark cutter DAGMAR AAEN to the Lofoten Islands.

The voyage begins at the end of December, so it is no wonder that the two adventurers hear this above all before they set off: Sailing? In the depths of winter?? To northern Norway???

Arved Fuchs, the polar professional, and Dr. Peter Sandmeyer, the cultural scientist, have already experienced many things on many expeditions, but this experience was new to both of them. All the richer the yield of their experiences and all the more exciting their account of the often uncomfortable Arctic Ocean, of wintry fjords, of bizarre landscapes under an unreal sky and, last but not least, of the everyday life of the people who live in larger towns (like Bod¢), small fishing settlements (like Henningsvær) or on barren islands (like Vær¢y) and find their existence up there in the remoteness completely normal.

Constant attention to the rough nature, which requires all the sailing skill, and a keen eye for living conditions and survival cultures are extended by small excursions into history. The atmospheric density is increased by the small insertions from the novel "The Lofot Fishermen", published in 1921.

The whole magic of the volume unfolds in the excellent photographs by Harald Schmitt. They are sometimes of ghostly beauty and then again of gripping drama. Supplemented by historical images, the result is a pictorial journey through space and time.

144 pages, 154 photos (colour and b/w), format 23 x 29cm, hardcover with dust jacket. German edition.
