Description

Local fisherman prepare to launch their outrigger canoes in Lingayen Gulf. From "Darkroom Soldier": "Seine Fishing on Lingayen Gulf. Shot one morning on the white sand beach near Binmaley, Hill documented some of the stages and the audience for successful local seine fishing: launching the outrigger (bangca) to carry the net out to sea
dropping and pulling in the net
landing the net on the beach
sorting the catch on the sand. Women in palm frond hats watch the process." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
