Bimini, Bahamas [2022]

On the sun-kissed shores of Bimini Island in the Bahamas, the conk fishermen are the guardians of a time-honored tradition that weaves through the fabric of island life. These skilled fishermen venture into the crystal-clear waters surrounding Bimini, armed with their knowledge of the ocean's rhythms and the art of conk fishing. Wading through the shallow flats, they patiently seek out the elusive queen conch, a prized mollusk with a stunning spiral shell. The conk fishermen, often barefoot and intimately connected with the sea, expertly harvest these marine treasures. Their practiced hands skillfully extract the conch from its shell, revealing the tender meat within. This age-old practice not only sustains the island's culinary delights but also preserves a cultural heritage that speaks to the deep bond between the Bimini Islanders and the bountiful sea that surrounds them.
