Description

Lit by the eerie light cast from the dock behind, the vast ship's hull towers over the lonely figure of the boatman and his boat, working into the night.

"The Relationship Between Humanity and the Sea"
I wished to honour the ceaseless work of the seafarers, and contrast the scale of one man and his boat, with the giant hull of a seagoing vessel in the port. Seemingly insignificant, yet vital in his role.
