Today, we talked to two crab fishermen featured on Discovery Channel's hit show, Deadliest Catch. The Hillstrand brothers wrote a book about their danger-dodging lives on the high seas, but another D.C. vet we talked to uses his camera to document his experiences on the crabbing circuit.

Corey Arnold — a bona fide crab fisherman featured in season two — is also a bona fide photographer. His current project, Fish-Work, is part photographic documentary, part conceptual art — capturing what he calls his "love/ hate relationship with fishing, manual labor, and the people that inhabit the fish towns of Northern Norway and Alaska."

His work has been featured in museums, magazines and galleries in San Francisco, Santa Monica and Norway, and is currently shown by a high-end New York gallery, Sara Tecchia Roma New York.
