Sunrise Fishing, Morondava Madagascar
I woke up shortly after sunrise to walk along the beach in Morondava on the west coast of Madagascar. Malagasy men, women, and children had already been up for hours fishing or “fanjonoana” in the calm waves. Using nets, buckets, out-rigger canoes, and even out-rigger canoes with make-shift tarp sails, everyone was working hard to collect seafood to sell at the market and to restaurants.
By the time the sun had completely risen, the beach was emptied so the hard working families could take their catch into town and continue in the next step of profiting from their tireless labor.
