From the gallery’s website:
“Photographer Barron Bixler evokes thoughtful reflection on the fishing practices currently forming the livelihood of the Brazilian fishing community in Alagoas, Brazil.
Since 2008, California photographer Barron Bixler has been documenting life in a small but important fishing community in Alagoas, Brazil.
Faced with declining fish, shrimp and lobster populations, high unemployment and the imminent destruction of its protected mangrove swamps due to the planned development of an oil supertanker shipyard, the men and women of this tight-knit community are caught somewhere between a relatively traditional way of life and Brazil’s race to become an economic superpower.
There will be brazilian music, grilled chicken hearts, Cerveja Sol…come on down!”
