Corey Arnold’s Captivating Documentation Of A Fisherman’s Life

Portland based, Corey Arnold, has taken some truly amazing documentary style photos of the honest accounts of what it means to be a fisherman at sea.  Corey’s photos are endearing telling stories of grueling and gritty conditions of the life of a fisherman tackling themes of isolation, courage, absurdity, and fortitude.  Corey is a fisherman himself, and has been taking astonishing real account photos as long as he has been fishing.  It is important to note that what makes Arnold’s photos so true and honest is the fact that he is actually a fisherman, just one of the guys out at sea, and has to earn his mate’s trust and pitch in like the rest bearing the harsh conditions of the day but still finding the nerve to grab his camera in opportune times.  In the summer Corey captains a wild salmon fishing boat in Bristol Bay, Alaska.  Arnold has exhibited his show “Fish-Work”: The Bering Sea earlier in 2012 and has published a book titled ‘The Bering Sea.’  (via)
