Elnathan, Kayhan & Ju Le: Photo Journal: Life and Death before Dawn

Before the sun rises, the people gather for business transactions. “Life & death before dawn”, is my title for this photo series. This is symbolic for us as this is my first live experience in the fishery. It is a point of reflection as Jesus’ disciples were fishermen and whose lives depend gravely on the daily catch. This photo series represents the life of a fisherman, beginning with the fishermen who bring in the fishes.

Then, preparation of the fishes that requires a lot of time and effort.

Finally, the fishes are sold to the customers. I feel that this encapsulates the whole process of being a fisherman. The irony of the liveliness and livelihood is based on the death of livestock.
