Fisherman's Blues

Turkey

by Dimitris Poupalos , 2012

The latest project features a series of pictures for a campaign commissioned by Square-fish, a Swiss frozen seafood company that specializes in wild Aegean shrimps as well as other natural seafood from the Mediterranean Sea.

Shot in Izmir, Turkey towards the end of 2012, the project sets out to tell the story of the Aegean Sea and its fishermen, transporting viewers on a journey through the world of commercial fishing.

Me and my lens board a hulking fishing trawler as it navigates the commanding waves of the majestic Aegean Sea, capturing the day to day life of the fishermen in hauntingly beautiful detail.
