In Chitwan National Park, the Fay Archive team met up with 'conservationist' DB Chowdry, the mind behind the area’s vulture protection programme.

The relationship between humans, animals and nature is particularly significant in this part of the Earth. On a large farm at the heart of southern Alaska's immense plains, we meet Michael, a passionate breeder of the mighty, thick-coated musk oxen. "Probably, the most important thing on the farm is not necessarily what we do, but how we do it."

Skateboarding culture instantly evokes a world of freedom and creativity. Just like that of Luca Facchinetti, where individual and distinctive style meet to build the boards on which skaters give free rein to their passion.

Iceland teaches us that there are many places in the world in which nature is in control and we can but learn to adapt.

“It’s just the purity and the clarity of the water... it’s like another world.” Extreme sports enthusiasts Heidar and Elli, let us accompany them on a dive that journeys between two continents.

FIELD TEST #10

“I never know when I go to the beach what is going to meet me. Sometimes I find nothing, sometimes quite a lot. I find it quite noble to work with driftwood because it has travelled for years in the ocean and the salt preserves it." And thus, the Fay Archive adventure continues to places where nature sets all the rules.

FIELD TEST #09

Fay Archive is angled by true passions, just like those that Erik holds dear for fly fishing and his land. We caught up with him at his typical workplace: the banks of Iceland's Blanda River.

FIELD TEST #8

Every day, Lawrie sets out to explore the North Sea waters in the vicinity of Dunbar, in North East Scotland.

A blustery wind blows along these coasts in spring and summer and the temperatures can vary significantly.

FIELD TEST #7

In ancient Polynesian societies, surfing was interwoven with every aspect of daily life: family, work, religion… Today, it is a passion for the bold, for those unafraid of the wind and cold. Fay Archive sets off on a voyage of discovery of volcanic landscapes, big waves and breath-taking cliffs as seen through the eyes of Joey, the surfboard builder who analyses, designs and creates the perfect boards for the next free ride.

THE LAND OF THE SAMI

We set off on a journey to discover the Finnish Lapland, the land of Northern Lights, ice igloos and magical midnight suns. We chose the Arctic Circle for its famed icy temperatures, to meet reindeers and wolfs, sledging and the warmth of a red-hot glowing fire.

BLENDING WITH NATURE

Nestled in the heart of the Italian Alps, a stunning natural scenario opens up with snowcapped mountains, a vigorous body of water flowing through the valley and lots of trees to boost wildlife. The perfect environment to explore with Fay Archive and its iconic 4 Ganci.

FIELD TEST #6

Rikard Rietz is a young documentary filmmaker who splits his time between his city life and the vastness of nature. A free man who decides to respond to the ancestral call of the earth, devoting to the traditional work of his family: a small business of the highest quality dairy products. An ordinary life in the open spaces of the cold Swedish countryside, made of long days starting at the crack of dawn.

FIELD TEST #5

Fay Archive goes back to Gotland once again, in the cold northern European lands, to tell the story of a solitary man and his deep passion for hard work and to try out his jackets with a workwear soul. Rolf manufactures boats: in the small sheds of his yard the wood comes to life thanks to his handcraft, turning into something unique.

FIELD TEST #4

Once again Fay Archive sets out in search of faraway, extraordinary places to meet independent men, proud of the hard work they do with visceral passion, and to let them try out its jackets. The hidden island of Gotland thus becomes the evocative backdrop for the daily portraits of a herring fisherman.

FIELD TEST #3

Our "tests", based in the most remote places on the earth, continue. People who put their hearts and souls into their jobs, all while testing out the resilience of our jackets. Davide Monteleone reports. Andrei, a lumberjack, is the protagonist in this story.

DESERT'S CALLING

Listen to the desert as it wakes, feel the heat rise from behind the dunes and watch as the dromedaries, dotted all around, break up the vast, open spaces. Can anyone resist the call of the desert?
