After visiting Le Havre fishing harbour in December 2022, I became more and more fascinated by the soft choregraphy of fishing ritual. The sounds, the smells and the living beings that are sharing their existence together through life and death.
Men have always been attracted by the sea because of what they can use from it. But also by all of what cannot be seen.

That is why, when I arrived to Taiwan in February 2023, I went to visit Kaohsiung and its internationnaly well-known fishing harbour. So different then the ones in France and yet the sounds and smells where echoing Le Havre, like a universal language that only can be spoken by those living from the sea.
