Fay Archive - Field Test #5


In the small port of Gotland, Sweden, Rolf Erixson looks proudly at one of the boats he manufactured with his own  hands and great passion.
He is a man in love with the sea who has chosen to live in the wilderness of a far away island, forging with thorough commitment boats that will one day sail the cold waters of the Baltic.
Master carpenter: in this definition the scent of the sea and that of the forest intertwine, combined in a vocation with an ancient tradition.

The vivid portraits of the reporter Davide Monteleone tell the daily life of a craftsman of the sea and his solitary life, his love for nature and for the values of a now almost forgotten profession.
