15 hours on the light boat

Here are some "irrelevant images" from the folders of my ongoing fishermen project.

A gull, lit by the halogen bulbs of the light boat, is taking off from the edge of the fish net.

Self-portrait in the cabin of Niyazi Kaptan, the "light boat" of the seiner Berat Reis, on a chilly and rainy night in the Aegean Sea.

The light boat sailing towards the rainbow.

The light boat = too much noise from the generator + too much light from the halogen bulbs + too much movement because of the small size of the boat + loneliness for the one man crew lambaci [the light man]
