A photographic essay on a Maritime lobster fisherman.
In early June, 2010, I spent three days aboard a lobster boat as it fished its traps in the Bay of Fundy. These photographs document the daily routine of the two Maritime fishermen who co-own the "Irish Lass." They also record some of the scenery and other vessels seen along the way.
Most of the images were captured using a digital camera. However, some shots were taken with black and white film. One roll of colour slide film, cross-processed as C-41, was also used.
The images are not presented in chronological order. Shots from all three days are combined with the intent of best demonstrating the daily work and routine.
