Balancing Act: A Fisherman And His Helpers

Many travelers from the West choose Vietnam for the sun, the sand and the seafood. If you stay at a hotel or resort by the sea, such as the luxurious The Nam Hai Resort in Hoi An, you not only can enjoy all of those things, you can see how fishermen bring home their catch.

It’s a scene that plays out daily all along Vietnam’s coastline. As the boat comes in -- usually very early in the morning -- family members are there to welcome their loved one home. Hieu Truong captured one such moment in black and white in 2014. After the fish are unloaded, they are sold right there to traders, who then transfer the fish to local markets.
