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.
