Deadliest Catch Star Corey Arnold Lives and Photographs A Fisherman's Life (PHOTOS)

Deadliest Catch star Corey Arnold is a photographer who lives, eats, and sleeps his art- an artist living a truly alternative life. Arnold lives on a fishing boat in the Bering Sea, documenting the lives of the fisherman and workers with whom he shares his boat. His current task: to document the state of the commercial fishing industry in the European Union. His images depict the lives not only of fisherman, but also of their families, communities, processors, shipyards, and netmakers. His stories are fascinating and an inspiration to those artistic dreamers who have strange and adventurous ideas up their sleeves. Read Arnold's first hand accounts, How to Be a European Fisherman Photographer, or How To Be An Alaskan Fisherman on Fecal Face, and check out the slide show below for a look at his life.
