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.

I doubt many people who visit Mumbai take time out of their business or holiday schedule to photograph boats, but my brother Matt Atkin did so, and the results he came back with more than justify taking his beloved Leica down to the waterfront.

Quite a few of these shots would look well on an artist’s easel. Many thanks Matt! I’ll put some more of these photos up in the next few days.

There are many things to find in these shots but I’m struck by the craft, many of which have the tubby quality that’s typical of many beach boats including  those of the UK.
