Kalanjiyam is a small-time fisherman from Rameswaram. He lives in the huts near the shoreline, along with his wife. I spotted them trying to get their fishing net ready for their next catch. I asked if I could take a photo of them — the early morning sunlight was brilliant. They smiled. We proceeded to have a small conversation about the types of fish they get, and howthey sell them. As we spoke, an old man set out to sail in the vast expanse of the sea behind us, sitting atop a large sheet and holding nothing but a set of paddles. I wondered where he was going.
