Photographer's Note

Cod fishing is one of the main commercial activities in the Lofoten. The fishing season is during the wintertime (january to april), and during the spring, cods are set to dry on wooden poles. There are everywhere, in astonishing quantities: it's an industry-size activity, with centuries-old techniques. Very efficient!

Cod driers are either shaped as little pointed tents, as here, or they are just flat and horizontal. This one was taken on the island of Svin鼜a, in Svolvaer.

And actually, it doesn't smell so bad!
