Libro-Sereas from Mar Cuervo on Vimeo.

For 3 months I lived in a fishing community in the North-West coast of Spain. There, I had the chance to get to know an all women community of clam diggers. Clam digging has historically been a work made exclusively by women, and even though today there are 5 men among  225 women, they are in majority in this field in a male dominated arena like fisheries. These women are well known for their strength, for being fighters and independent and also for their natural ability for leadership. Their history has showed us how pride and self-satisfaction could lead into a profound sense of identity.

 

This is a self-published book titled "Sereas" (Mermaids).
