Francisco Cabrera “Pacurri”, 2016. Originally from Málaga, a coastal city in southern Spain, Pacurri moved to the former fishing town of Calpe more than half a century ago. After spending his life aboard fishing vessels, he had to retire due to a kidney disease that finally took his life away at the age of 61.
From ‘Goodness of Evil’ by Ángel Fitor ( @angelfitor ), a photo essay on “the human face of cursed fishery.”
