Photographer's Note

Iceland has more than half a million sheep, twice as many sheep as people.
During the summer months, the sheep feed on common grazing lands, natural pastures shared by groups of farmers. No sheepherders are necessary.
Records of the ear marks and ear tags worn by each farmer's sheep are published often. It is not difficult to determine to whom each sheep belongs. Although a few lambs are killed each year by foxes, the total number lost is almost nihil.
