Although seafarers are responsible for delivering over 90% of the world's goods, they remain an understudied group in our society. While conducting intense fieldwork on-board merchant ships in deep sea voyages in the Mediterranean sea, I discovered a complex and unique lifestyle carried out by fascinating people. The compilation of pictures was my attempt to get across a glimpse into seafarers' life on-board, living in isolation from society for long periods of time while staying away from their families, encountering often difficult weather conditions and experiencing constant stress and fatigue without the option to go home at the end of their working day. The pictures were taken during my voyage at sea, seizing the nature at its best during a sunset and the seafarers in action - during a routine drill on-board and during routine work – for providing better lives for their families.
