People leave the small communities along the coast of Norway's northernmost county Finnmark, in favor of a life in the city. 25% of the population has left these coastal areas since 1992. General urbanization, lack of work opportunities and fragile local economies are some of the reasons why people move. The youth hardly see any future in the far north. This picture is from Sørvær in Hasvik. (image by Adrian Øhrn Johansen)
