"The Yin-Bou Fishermen Of China" by Asher Svidensky

Many years ago, at the 16th century the Huang family has brought the unique art of “Yin-Bou” fishing to the Li river of Xing-Ping village in south china. Fishermen who use cormorant birds in order to fish in the river.

I’ve photographed 73 year old Yue-Ming and his older brother 83 year old Yue-miang, they have been fishing in the Li river since they were 15 years old and they are masters of the "Yu-Khuo" technique, using an old lamp they control their birds in the water and collect the fish from them.

For details of the story and photos, please visit the website of Asher Svidensky Photography. 

Asher Svidensky is a freelance documentary photographer and frequent traveler in the Mongolian steppe and north Asia. He writes and publishes many articles about the world of documentary photography and the various cultures he documented.

The following video is about how to breake the ice - convince "Yin-Bou Fishermen" to be photographed. You can see more videos of short photo stories from the Youtube channel of Asher Svidensky.
