The subjects of the photograph are the heads of Norwegian cod called Skrei, who reside in the Barents Sea. Once a year, these fish swim to the sea near the Lofoten, an archipelago close to the Norwegian coast, northwest of Bodø. At the end of January, millions of fish return after traveling 500 miles to spawn on their native soil.
