The Gullaksen children at home in Hattarvik, on the remote Faroese island of Fugloy.

Generations of the Gullaksen family have grown up in Fugloy, one the most remote and inaccessible of the Faroe Islands, though they no longer live there permanently. Only five permanent residents remain on this island, which during the winter months is often cut off completely for weeks at a time when the weather is too rough for both the ferry and the helicopter to reach it.
