‘Portraits of Fisherman’
Meet the fisherman in land.
Recently I traveled to the beautiful beachtown of Zorritos, in the north of Peru. In the evening I went to the harbor where I found many fisherman repairing their boats. They told me their stories and talked about their work. Many come from different parts of Peru. Some left the city of Lima to become men of the sea. One of them told me he escaped from justice to find peace and solitude there.
Every evening they go to the beach to repair their boats using simple materials lake pieces of rope and glue. Some boats take months to be repaired, in which time the fisherman can't go back to sea. Luckily this fisherman master the art of patience!
What I liked most of this men is their solitude and mystery.
