Fisherfolks of Cebu, Philippines
Photos by Robert Gardner
The sea is never far away and provides a livelihood
and sustenance to all the towns that dot the coasts. I was visiting friends
in a rural part of Cebu and one day the local fishermen set out their net
along the beach. It was truly a community effort with many families helping
with setting and hauling the net and sharing the catch. These photos are a
vignette of life in a corner of the Philippines.
