Fathers and Sons, 2018
Shafai (center) drives a boat near the shore in search of schools of fish to catch on May 9, 2018 in Fugum, Yemen. Shafai doesn’t send his sons to school: He believes an education won’t help them make a living. Instead, he teaches them how to fish. “Our life and work is on the sea. I can teach my sons the trade, and they can provide for themselves. We’re poor in work, but we’re rich in life.”
