Photographer's Note

In whichever part of the world, to me observing fishermen always has a very tranquil feel about it. It’s almost like watching meditation or even a succession of precious rituals. I admire them and their patience.

The tranquil Inle Lake is dotted with fisherman making their living in these magical surroundings.
They made a deep impression on me with their skills and I’m in awe at how they tempt faith by balancing in the front of a simple canoe as if they were standing on land.
It’s almost as if they transmit that sense to ones mind as after a peaceful ride on the water that is exactly how you feel, in balance.
