Requiem For a Fisherman
Canon EOS 5D | 33mm | 1/50 | f/20
Living in an urban area – and being used to machination and industrial products, we can often take our wonderful natural resources for granted. When Adobe sent me and a few other photographers to Tasmania a while back, the simple ways of the people opened my eyes to a way of life that was organically integrated with its natural environment. In this photograph, Phil the fisherman sits on a plateau of rock, gazing out into the ocean with no specific goal in mind. Many Tasmanians depend on their gorgeous surroundings directly for their survival and livelihood and I wanted to capture the lifestyle of a fisherman, a simple life not distracted by noise and the palpitations of human traffic.
