Silhouetted Seaweed Farmer
I made this photograph from the beach on Nusa Lembongan, a small island in the Badung Strait between the popular islands of Bali and Lombok in Indonesia. As you may suspect, the 7,000 or so inhabitants of this laid-back island depend almost exclusively on the ocean for their livelihood. Sitting like a speed bump in the deep Badung Strait between the Pacific and Indian Oceans has some distinct advantages. The shallow coral reefs surrounding the island provide not only protection from the strong currents, but also most of the locals diet. What's more, the entire economy of Nusa Lembongan relies on the reefs as they also allow for the cultivation of seaweed, not to mention the sea-loving tourists there for the world class surfing and scuba diving. As I was photographing some of the farmers carrying their daily harvest of seaweed onto the beach, I happen to look up and catch inspiration. I saw this one last seaweed farmer guiding his flat bottomed skiff across the horizon. Knowing he would soon be crossing in front of the golden sunset, I framed my shot and waited for him to pass through so I could catch a perfect silhouette of him.
