These pictures depict how most people in the Ssese Islands fish-for personal use and the small amount of profit they can make trading with the mainland. Some nights are good, others are not. It is rare to find someone with a motorized boat, so most travel is done by rowing. It is also rare to find a fisherman who can swim. "People learn to swim when they are young," says our friend Thompson. "Us, we are too busy. We have to work; we have to find food." As a result, deaths by drowning are a yearly occurrence in this village of 400.
