Matthew Atkin photographs Mumbai’s fishing port, its boats and community

Photographer Matthew Atkin in Mumbai 16

Once again, my photographer brother Matthew Atkin has gone out with his Fuji camera and brought home an oustanding set of photos, this time from Mumbai, India – and once again he shows how timber built boats remain supreme in many parts of the world.

Thanks Matt – this collection is jaw-dropping! I guess I don’t really have to add that these beautifully balanced photos remain very much his copyright, but they are.

  1. Bravo!
    Most of these pilothouse fishing boats look pretty “Western” in design until you see the hull form, which is quite dhow-like.
