Waiting for fish
Kasimedu Fishing Harbour

There was silence as day broke over some stacked crates and a tri-cycle parked in front of a wholesale fish shop. As trawlers from the deep sea bring in the day’s catch, the hustle of selling fish would bring everything to life. This is one slice from the amazing street life Udayan saw of the lull before the storm a trawler of fresh fish brings to the Kasimedu Fishing Village in Chennai.

Kasimedu Fishing Harbour

The Kasimedu Fishing Harbor at Chennai comes alive when a trawler pulls in with a load of fish. Porters like this one in the shadow hold up their cane baskets to not only protect themselves from the sun, but also to avoid bumping into each other as they weave their way to the waiting customer while also indicating that they are available for hire with their raised posture. In its shadow, this unique way of life was captured perfectly.

“Will you shoot me?” Said the shy boy from behind the rickety wooden doors that almost was falling out of its hinges. As if the door was not enough to hide behind, he seemed to gain confidence that Chhota Bheem, his cartoon idol would protect him from all the attention he was receiving.
