Description
Fishing is one of the most ancient preoccupations of humankind; "Don't stand by the water and long for fish; go home and weave a net," is a popular Chinese proverb. Asia's oceans, lakes, and rivers provide a substantial part of the region's food supply, and ingenious contraptions and devices for fishing have been constructed since the dawn of civilization. This compact coffee-table book highlights cultural traditions through the extraordinary diversity of fishing methods across Asia, captured in 117 color photographs by Hans Kemp and others and accompanied by relevant quotes and proverbs. The Dutch photographer whose book Bikes of Burden was mentioned on the floor of the U.S. Senate as proof of Vietnam's economic vitality in major trade negotiations, Kemp has been a frequent and widely traveled visitor to Asia since the mid-1980s. The vivid color images collected here are both evocative and profoundly humane, depicting a world vastly different from our own yet built on the same foundations.
