The North Norfolk coast of England is one of the most idyllic and iconic of European landscapes. Fishing has been a way of life here for over 2000 years and today's mussel fishing industry continues largely unchanged for generations.
This book is a close-up record of - and a tribute to - the manual work and skill of a small group of mussel fishermen as they cultivate, harvest and process their catch in wet, windswept, winter isolation. Their words, memorably expressive, provide a context for, and a commentary on, these unique images: "I just felt evil crushing into me. There was nobody near, but the evil was there somehow or other."
