Famous for its spectacular coastline, seascapes and mountain vistas, life in Positano is literally built around the sea.
The township is a year round magnet for tourists, and the crystal blue seas are a way that many get to and from the area, and are a major part of their enjoyment of it. Swimming, snorkelling, diving, sailing, fishing and other marine tourism are all important.
During the quieter winter months fewer people swim, but there are constant reminders of the role that the seas play in the town’s rhythm of life.
After shooting the vistas of the township each sunrise from different overlooks, I felt the need to do something different. Along with the steps of Positano, I felt that the working sea is an important part of the township’s story.
