Fish-Work: The Bering Sea
Photographs by Corey Arnold
Hardcover, 15 x 12 inches, 80 pages, 47 four-color plates
Published by Nazraeli Press 2011
The photographs in “Fish-Work: The Bering Sea” capture moments from Arnold’s grueling retreats as a crew member aboard a fishing boat to the Bering Sea. With scenes of boat life so vivid that some shots can induce fear or seasickness, the artist’s perspective also reveals the tender soulfulness of a fisherman’s extended life at sea. His skillful compositions depict the simultaneous bravery, toil, humor and gumption that “fish-work” demands. Yet the series also illuminates the aesthetic sublimity that can only be experienced, ultimately, by those willing to risk their lives where the sea breaks its back. Having survived several seasons afloat these icy and unforgiving waters, we are lucky that Arnold has taken time to document his artistic impressions of this rare lifestyle and extended us a vicarious glimpse.
A graduate of the Academy of Art in San Francisco, Corey Arnold lives and works in Portland, and now runs a commercial salmon fishing boat in Bristol Bay, Alaska. His work has been exhibited worldwide. Recent publications featuring Arnold's work include the Juxtapoz Photo Book, New York Times, Time, The New Yorker, The Sunday Telegraph, Outside, The Paris Review, and PDN.
“Fish-Work: The Bering Sea” is published by Nazraeli Press in conjunction with Charles A. Hartman Fine Art. It is printed in an oversized format in a 1st edition, second printing of 1,000 casebound copies.
