Whenever anyone asks me why I love Cambodia so I will tell them, ‘It’s because of laughing fishermen’.
This series of photographs were taken right at the end of a wonderfully inspiring private photography tour I lead at Kompong Phluk water village. This determined fisherman, with the tumour on his back and one leg, works every day, casting his net, falling in the river, getting up again, laughing, casting his net, falling in the river, getting up again, laughing…..
‘I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never going to keep me down’
