A craftsman takes great pride in the tools of his trade. For a fisherman, his boat is his pride.. his joy...and the lifeline to his very existence. Every morning these fishermen clean, caulk, tar and then pray to their brilliantly colored ( each painted and named distinctively by the fisherman himself) boats to protect them as they brave the unpredictable seas to earn their daily bread.

Location: Marina Beach, Chennai. India
