ABOUT

"05.45 hrs 19 Sept 2017, cast off from Njarðvík aboard Halldór afi GK 222, a small fishing boat which has set a course to bring in fish caught overnight in 500m nets off the south west coast of Iceland. The nets are about an hour from land so there's time to relax after an early start drive from my Icelandic base. This morning the North Atlantic is forgiving... I'm lucky!"

[A visual insight into the working lives of Jóhann, Helle and Johnny, three Icelandic sea fishermen - part of my recent trip to document Icelandic fishing and its people]
