Title: Fisherman under dawn

Location: Quang Lang Beach, Diem Diem, Vietnam

Story

“Vietnam has a long coastline of 3,260 km, excluding its islands. Vietnamese people in generally stick to living close to the sea given its a rich variety of seafood all the way from the North to the South. Fishing is an incredibly large industry in Vietnam and with my photography I like to capture artistic ways of these traditional methods.’

In order to capture this scene, me and my friends woke up at 4 am and walked about 2km barefoot from the shore to the beach to wait for the sunrise and the fishermen to start their work. Although it was an early start and a long morning, it was well worth it to achieve this shot.”
