CLAUDIO CAMBON: SHIPBREAK. Edition Patrick Frey, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 168 pp. 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783905929843 In English.
Publisher's description: The unique and entangled relationship between Bangladesh ship-breakers and U.S. oil tanker S.S. Minole's longtime crew is chronicled in this photographic essay by documentary photographer Claudio Cambon. Over 80 color and black-and-white images document the story of the merchant vessel's last voyage, dismantling and recycling in Bangladesh in 1998 -- a process that signaled both an end and a beginning for two cultures. For the Americans, it meant the close of a long and productive life navigating crude oil around the world; for the Bangladeshi, an opportunity to develop jobs and income for a struggling country. The photographs speak to the ways in which the ship became a touchstone for her American shipbuilders, the seamen who worked on her for almost 40 years, the Bangladeshi ship-breakers who took the vessel apart more or less by hand and the people who incorporated the ship's raw materials into their daily lives.
