IN the Hemingway novel ‘The Old Man and the Sea’ the main character catches a giant marlin but fails to haul the fish in. These two lads below did a better job. The first man is carrying a shark in de streets of Mogadishu, Somalia. The photographer is Omar Feisal and this image won a World Press Photo award.

 

On the second picture a Peruvian fisherman carries a Paiche, a giant South American tropical freshwater fish, to the market. This image is by Alex Webb.

 

Men carrying fish is also a theme Keith Haring was inspired by, judging the top character on this mural in Pisa.
