RHAPSODIE WADATSUMI 

From ancient times in Japan, there is a legendary god of the sea called Wadatsumi who watches over and protects fishermen. Japanese fishermen have been plying their trade in the sometimes treacherous seas around Japan for centuries, praying to Wadatsumi for protection. In an attempt to record the people and places that make up the Japanese ishing industry, I have been photographing fishing ports in Japan since 2010. Nowadays many ports are full of concrete, but there are still many beautiful old ports that remain, and it is these that have most impressed me on my travels around the country. have called my series of photos "Rhapsody" as I have sought to convey the beauty of the Japanese ports and the intense feelings they inspire in me. want to document the lives of Japan's fishermen as they struggle to survive in an industry hard hit by the Tsunami of 2011.
