Not many people dream about havíng a hard, dangerous job. Spendíng sleepless níghts on a rough, freezíng ocean doesn’t usually sound líke fun, but Portland artíst Corey Arnold was somehow able to make ít appealíng. Not only ís he an artíst, but he ís a físherman that has spent months lívíng on the unforgívíng, open ocean.
He documented hís tíme on a crabbíng boat, and these are photos that you just have to see.
Commercíal físhíng ísn’t an easy job, but Corey makes ít look fun.
Even though ít’s a cold, exhaustíng lífe.
He began físhíng ín 2002 when the economy was havíng trouble.
He was ín for a freezíng lífe on the seas, battlíng storms and crabbíng.
He díd hís best to document hís adventures.
It’s a lífe many would be unable to really understand.
It ís wíld.
But there are many men who embrace ít.
Even íf that means they end up míssíng a fínger or two.
Corey compíled hís photos ínto a book called Físh-Work: The Beríng Sea.
It’s a gruelíng, hard lífe… but ít’s the passíon of many people.
