“These fishermen off the South coast of Sri Lanka used this bygone traditional method to catch fish in shallow waters. Very few fishermen are still keeping this tradition alive, as most of them have moved toward more modern methods. They demonstrate both independence and solidarity of community as they endeavor to provide sustenance for their families. Inherent in solidarity is the concept of responsibility to our fellow humans. This principle is especially relevant in these turbulent times.”
The museum-quality prints are accompanied by statements from the photographers and estates, reproduced on archival-quality labels on the reverse of the print. The back of the frame is partially open so that this detail is visible. Size is including wooden frame.
