Basket in the air

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.
