Mimmo Weaves His Fishing Net In Sicily

This is Mimmo. He was kind enough to allow me to take his picture. Today, I’m starting our Photography in Sicily photo adventure with Don Toothaker and Hunt’s Photo, so I was inspired the other day to take a portrait of Mimmo when I peeked in his workshop, where he was making his fishing net. Yes, that’s right. In Porticello, the fisherman weave their own nets. I see it often when I am here. It’s an important skill for fisherman. And a beautiful artform, if even they get completely beat up!

Now, we are on the other side of Sicily at another fishing port. Stand by for more… Live from Sicily.
