Fanø dagbog, which means Fanø diary, takes us through the daily life on the Danish island and brings these acts back to new life. The Danish-German photographer Ole Joern got inspired by the slowness and the different rhythm that occurs on the island.

Ole Joern´s photos are showed both in exhibitions and books where Ole re-visualize the unique cultural heritage of Fanø. The artist himself says that the time he spent at Fanø allowed him to create wonderful images in his own mind which were later transformed into photos. This was because of the calm and consciousness he experienced there.

Ole Joern was born in Flensburg and has a summer house on Fanø. He is a trained photo journalist at the Danish College of Journalism. He dedicated about one and a half years at the island to create his photo exhibition. He did it in collaboration with Kis Sharashuvana and Christel and Jørgen Seyfarth, who are specialized on costumes from Fanø.

The exhibition is held at the premises of the Kgl. Danish Embassy and will end at the 19th of April. The admission is free.
