Commercial fishermen near Istanbul, Turkey

Commercial fisherman near Istanbul, Turkey

One morning last week my friend Alex and I drove to a small fishing village on the coast of the Black Sea, just north of Istanbul.  Having grown up in an even smaller fishing village in Maine, I thought I would feel right at home.  But when we arrived I was utterly shocked at how large these commercial fishing vessels are.  I’d never seen one so large in my life.

Lucky for me Alex speaks some Turkish and we were invited aboard by the crew from one of the boats.  We spent the afternoon learning about their life at sea, drinking Turkish tea and photographing them.  It’s a hard life they live but you could tell they all felt very comfortable doing this for their living.  They seemed content.
