Photographer's Note

This man is a sardine fisherman. He is simultaneously smoking his cigar and helping to pull in a long net full of sardines.

I saw these fishermen while eating breakfast at my beachside guest house one morning, so I got my camera and went to take a look.

The fishing net formed a loop out to sea from two groups of fisherman pulling it in from shore. The net was maybe 300 metres long, and once it was pulled in, it was full of thousands of jiggling sardines.

There were maybe 20 fisherman all up doing the pulling. They seemed to have all different personalities. Some were serious, some not. The person in the background wanted me to go to his house to smoke some ganga and drink home brewed alcohol. Others just asked where I was from and how I liked Sri Lanka.
