Ronja on the Day of Her Confirmation Ceremony

Ronja grew up as the only girl on the remote and enigmatic island of Mykines, the westernmost of the Faroe Islands and home to some of the richest bird cliffs in the world. Her confirmation was the first to be celebrated in Mykines since 1962 because no young people had lived permanently on the island since then.

This photo is a finalist in the People category of our 15th Annual Photo Contest. See all 60 finalists here.
