Based in Portland Oregon, Corey Arnold is a contemporary photographer and commercial fisherman. His photos capture moments from the grueling retreats spent as a crew member while fishing out at sea.
His skillful compositions depict the bravery, toil, humor and gumption that “fish-work” demands.
Arnold’s work also illuminates the aesthetic sublimity that can only be experienced, ultimately, by those willing to risk their lives where the sea breaks its back.
Having survived several seasons afloat these icy and unforgiving waters, we are fortunate that Arnold has taken time to document his artistic impressions of this rare lifestyle.
