Inle Lake's traditional Intha Fishermen play around in front of my camera as the morning mist envelopes the lake. They get around on flat bottomed skiffs and use a technique of leg rowing, where they wrap a leg around the paddle and drive the boat through the water with a snake like swirling motion of the leg. They push tall reed baskets into the shallow waters to trap fish and then spear them through an opening on the top.
