“THE SEA IS EVERYTHING TO ME. IT’S MY WHOLE LIFE”.
JULIETA RIVAS | FISHERWOMAN
THIS IS JULIETA
Julieta Rivas has worked out at sea for as long as she can remember. She didn’t even stop the nine months she was carrying her son. “The ocean is my life”, she says repeatedly, as if one wouldn’t immediately know that after spending more than 10 minutes with her. The hard labour and dangerous conditions of the Chilean ocean don’t bring her down, nor does the fact that she is the only woman in all male fishing crews.
