Men of the sea

During a browse round the Magnum website blog, I came across some great work by Magnum photographer Jean Gaumy who photographed four long fishing trips to record the day to day struggles of working fisherman. He published the images in 2001 for a book called 'Pleine mer' which has been published as an english version called "Men at sea.

Gritty and powerful, Jean's remarkable work certainly captures the raw power of the ocean, his love of the sea and the hard toil of the commercial fishermen who work the sea.

This second link goes to a bigger gallery of Jean's work and includes his Pleine mer work, photography from Iran plus some fascinating work from inside a French prison.
