The Fisherman 2

Another piece from my fisherman photo shooting.
I was on holiday in Croatia, a small island when I did this self-portrait.

The concept behind this image is the old and the new type of the ideal man opposed in one picture. The fisherman, who brings food for his family at dawn vs. the dapper macho who spends all his money to be attractive and receive more and more women.

I wanted to show this absurd situation in a heroic fashion style photo.

Concept and image: me
Model: me
(I never thought that I will ever stand in front of the camera, but on an uninhabited island, where there are no models, you have to do everything!)

And yes. The octopus and the eel was 100% real!!!

And the portrait of The Fisherman's Wife

That's a really good concept and I think it works better in this one than in The Fisherman 1. Mainly because you're not looking at the camera.. the other one makes me think that the person is expecting recognition or praise because he's "bringing food" to his family.. which I guess would contradict what you're trying to say about the difference between the old and new type. This one is more natural.. and more successful because on the one hand it shows this man who does not consider this an achievement but a part of everyday life.. on the other hand it's like what you said.. he's trying to be attractive and appealing. So it's a good contradiction. I also like the framing in this one more than the other one.

Just one question.. did you use any light source other than natural light? Because as far as I can tell the sun is behind you..

Anyway.. great job.
