The Colors of Lobstering
Most people think of lobsters in terms of melted butter and paper bibs, or wharves reeking of barreled bait. But Maine photographer Greg Currier presents a very different side of America’s favorite crustacean, one flooded with the brilliant colors of the buoys, boats, traps, and foul-weather gear of the working lobsterman. Currier captures the beauty in the everyday experience of lobstering, as well as in the peaceful predawn start of a lobsterman’s day. From the neon glow of buoys stacked for use to a working harbor aglow at sunset, these truly are the colors of lobstering.
