"It's hard to explain, but I see my entire world in still images. I do it because nothing else on earth gives me as much satisfaction as getting a new and original shot."
This amazing quote comes from a man who doesn't really consider himself a photographer. Joel Woods has made countless images documenting working life on boats. Having spent 20 years earning a living on the sea, he's learned hard lessons in life and photography, and he's proved his talent for creative work that captures the hardships and danger inherent in commercial fishing.
Woods' photographs were recently featured in Yankee magazine. Read his fascinating interview on PPmag.com!
