Shot in Yangshuo, China

I took many more than three photos of my day with Cormorant fisherman Lao Huang, but this is one of the three that stuck with me. There’s a care in his look, a reassurance that his birds are okay and in their proper place and ready, that suggested to me how he values this work, the tradition of his ancestors. And even if this thirteen-hundred-year-old fishing method is more a tourist attraction than anything else, it is his line to the past, and his care for that history is plain to see.

These birds are called Cormorant, they belong to this friendly 86-year-old fisherman named Lao Huang. Cormorant fishing is a traditional fishing method in which fishermen use trained cormorants to fish in rivers, but sadly the thirteen-hundred-year-old fishing method, now only survives as a tourist attraction in modern days.

Prints are carefully rolled, and shipped in kraft tube boxes.

Hi, I’m Peter Yan, an independent artist and travel photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. I first want to thank you for being here and for taking the time to check out my photos and prints. To me, photography has always been a chance to capture those moments in time that make up the fabric of the places I visit. Whether it’s a surfer catching a wave under the Golden Gate or a Cormorant fisherman honouring a centuries-old way of life, each of these photos makes up my ever-growing love letter to our planet earth.

Take a look around the shop and I believe you’ll find something here to inspire your own travel and to refresh your way of looking at the world around us. By buying these unique prints, you’re supporting an independent artist and a small business to continue to explore and thrive and document our beautiful world. I couldn’t have this store or this career that I’m honoured to have without you and your support, and I hope to continue creating with you, and for you, for a very long time.
