Poling a boat through the still waters of a Red Sea harbor, the fisherman projects a calm balance at odds with the visual chaos of the commercial rigs and ship in the background. Webb’s photograph highlights a contrast between small-scale economies that served the needs of local communities and those global economies that enveloped them.
