In the rugged North Sea, the island of Helgoland has braved the elements for centuries. As another natural spectacle, each year thousands of migrating birds find their safe haven on Helgoland and their resting and breeding attracts ornithologists from all over the world. Robert Morgenstern and Alexander Haßkerl's debut is an empathetic and visually stunning declaration of love to the small island and its habitants.
