Photography: Corey Arnold makes the world’s most dangerous job look like quite a lot of fun actually

Personally I can think of nothing worse than spending months at sea in a giant frozen boat, risking my life night and day so that people lazier than I am can enjoy a fish supper once a week. Sounds hellish. And yet Corey Arnold spent seven years aboard various commercial fishing vessels on Alaska’s Bering Sea, battling gargantuan waves, sleepless nights and sub-zero temperatures rustling crab and fish from the arctic waters. Thankfully he took his camera along with him, meaning we get to experience this hazardous profession without having to set even one foot onto a boat. Easy!
