2022 RECIPIENT

Dan Fenstermacher, San Jose, CA; Food Chain

From the project statement – “Working every day except Tuesdays the fisherman from the seaside towns of Prampram, Cape Coast, and Ada, Ghana, head out to sea where they fish up to 40 kilometers offshore. For generations, families of these communities have fished the Atlantic Ocean. What they catch will determine the livelihood of the community and their families. During the summer months of 2021, I photographed the story of these local communities of fisherman.”
