About ‘10pm Sunset’ – words by Asaf Einy:
The interest in this project started in the winter of 2018, during my first visit to Sicily I came across the fish market and was overwhelmed by the scenes. All the fishermen, young and old, looked like they came out of a movie. it was very visually appealing to me. I realized that I’ll have to come back to capture it all. When I went back in summertime, the fishermen already knew me after they’ve seen me strolling around every morning with my camera for about a week. At one point, they didn’t even tried to sell me any fish, they just let me take their photos.
10pm Sunset is my first self published book. it revolves around a summer trip. I started my journey in Napoli then continued to Catania, Sicily. It is a documented portraiture through short meetings with strangers along the way.
