Description

A cormorant fisherman on the Li River near Guilin, southern China. This man, who was 87 years old at the time of this photo, and his brother and nephew made a living posing for photos at dusk and dawn on the scenic Li River. All three men found a better living posing for photos than fishing with cormorants. They represent a mostly by-gone era of cormorant fishing in southern China. They have appeared in many photos published around the world, including the cover photo for this OP assignment.
