Life of Fishermen Along the Coast

Paradip to Chandrabhaga Seabeach, Konark, Orissa

We go to trek, to enjoy the beauty of Nature – we shoot memorable images, but we seldom think and feel of the immense struggle of livelihood of our subjects.

Throughout our coastal trek from Paradip to Chandrabhaga Seabeach, we came across Fisherman Bastis, and had the opportunity to observe their life.

Here are some shots that will give us some idea on the Fisherman community and their activities.
