Combing the Tide

“Combing the Tide 1” / Haigyikyun, Ngaputaw Township Myanmar / December 2016

I wrote of villagers of Haigyikyun and how the village men battle tide to catch a specific bounty from the sea: tiny shrimps (see The Fisherfolks of Haigyikyun).  In the course of the day, as I watched and took photos of these brave men, I collected photos of individuals who seem oblivious to the crashing waves as they comb the tide for these tiny creatures.  Here’s a few of my favorites.
