Celebrating the human form

Fishermen in Srilanka
Picture by Steve McCurry

The most interesting thing about the picture is ,apart from the exoticism of the SriLankan sea-scape,the beauty and symmetry of the human form represented in the picture. The figures of the fishermen are etched against the sea-sky in almost geometric shapes. Mark the angle of the camera which captures the perfect symmetry of the body postures of the fishermen perched on the poles. A good photograph celebrates the beauty of the human form as it operates on the elements of nature .
