Blood lobsters
On the outermost point of Honduras’ peninsula between the Caratasca lagoon and the Caribbean Ocean, lies the small town Kawkira. It is there, in the most far-out areas of Honduras, that the Misquito Indians have lived off of lobster diving for decades. Today, America’s growing demand for the sea creatures causes them to dive deeper and more often. Many risk their lives diving only with the most basic and outdated equipment.

This is an ongoing project I still is working on.
