The Price of Fish

Article about a photo exhibit, "The Price of Fish," by labor photographer Earl Dotter "meant to enlighten people about the dangers of fishing and what crews are doing to improve conditions."
Dotter has been documenting hazardous working conditions for more than 30 years. In the 1970s, he lived among coal miners. Later, he expanded his work to steel mills, textile mills, construction, logging, health-care facilities, farming, maximum-security prisons and, most recently, emergency responders working on the pile at Ground Zero in New York City after 9/11.
If you happen to be in Portland, Maine, check it out. You can also see exerpts from this exhibit and many of Earl's other photos on his website.
