On the southwestern coast of Madagascar, Vezo fishermen sail through turquoise seas where the notion of time is diluted and traditional life remains unchanged, as if it had been taken down through the time tunnel.

They practice physical fishing that exhausts their bodies face to face with the force of the ocean. At dawn, dhows and canoes set sail in a challenging dance amidst the wind, currents and the expertise of the fishermen. They need all the muscles that sculpt their bodies to extract the fruit from the sea. There is no possibility of individualism, the collective effort and the solidarity of the community is the only guarantee of survival.

A people linked to their environment with which they maintain a fragile balance and where the harmonic beauty of its elements covers everyday life with poetry. Here the hard life is full of smiles to survive.
