To me these photos have an element of detached sadness in them, showing stories and glimpses into a world that is being lost now.

Unlike much photography which more deliberately frames, manipulates and uses its subjects, these hold back and respect their subjects. They rather carefully record.

My favourites are the fisher on the pontoon surrounded by a space of water and those showing children.
