Interesting Photo of the Day: A Fisherman Casts His Net

The world is filled with terrific photographers unknown to the world, usually because they don’t speak perfect English or live in parts of the world where only a handful of artists can scrape together a living. Suloara Allokendek from Jakarta, Indonesia, is one such person. You probably haven’t heard of him, but his collection of breathtaking images captures life in rural Indonesia better than most foreign professionals could manage:

Allokendek has a soft spot for fishermen and seems to always be ready at the right moment—when the shape of the net is full and majestic. He snapped this moment with a Canon 5D Mark II with a deep depth-of-field—probably zooming in from quite far away. The photo is called, simply, “jala”—the Indonesian word for “net”.
