Set against the brilliant aquamarine water and a turbulent sky, three men unload their catch on the beach near Mogadishu, after a day fishing the bountiful Indian Ocean. Here, Webb turns his lens toward Somali small-scale industry, a local commercial practice that contrasts to large-scale foreign and extractive endeavors like the Sinclair Oil Corporation.
