Artist's Description

Not an image for sale, I would just like to show some of the stuff I’ve been working on while studying photojournalism!

Picture 4 in a series of 5:

After what Peter Jacobi describes as a hard day’s work – with a strong hint of sarcasm – he returns his ship to port to pass the day’s catch on to a fish-auction. Here, they will be sold to the highest bidder, a good catch averaging the equivalent of two hundred dollars.

Afterwards, the sunny skies call for a cold beer, and when Jacobi is joined by one of the few remaining fishermen, a handful more are put on the deck. The talk between them range from anything from fishprices to Viagra, but one subject is hard to avoid; the fact, that they are a dying breed.

Year by year, as the large corporations launch their bigger, faster and more cost-effective vessels, more of the town’s old fishermen retire – and the old boats join their fates.
