“There has never been a photobook about coastal fishermen so close to people and it will not be possible in the future.

With her photoart, Iwona Knorr succeeds in deepening our view of the world in which we live. It is important to understand the existential threat that comes with the thoughtless destruction of our livelihoods. Fishermen become symbols. At the same time, we look at the fishermen at ourselves. That adds a remarkable reading to the photobook.

We particularly like that the fishermen have their say. What they have to say in simple, clever words about work, family and cross-generational traditions moves and makes you think. It broadens our understanding of how we look at the photographs and confirms their authenticity.

Iwona Knorr's photo-artistic narration of personal encounters with coastal Rügen fishermen provides fascinating insights into their everyday work, a world that is largely hidden from us. The artist's sentimental attachment to the inshore fishermen is recognizable and understandable: Rügen inshore fishermen are landmarks, they mean home. ”
