One of the Last
Cormorant fishing was once a successful local industry in Guilin but sadly it is no longer economical to fish this way. Huang Gao-Hui, 73, is probably the last cormorant fisherman still going out on his raft. I can still hear him proudly declaring that he holds the responsibility of keeping the fishermen's gas lamps burning on the Li River.

Beatrice is drawn to remote places for their dramatic landscapes as well as slowly disappearing culture and traditions. She strives to capture these incredible experiences and share this sense of forgotten peace and tranquility with others. Photography transcends language and cultural barriers. She hopes that through her lens you will be inspired to appreciate nature and make an effort to become more environmentally conscious. These breathtaking landscapes are under threat and unless something is done, we may be left with only photographs and memories.
