"Vannak Anan Prum left his village in Cambodia to seek work in Thailand. Men who appeared to be employers on a fishing vessel promised to return him, but instead Vannak was hostage on the vessel for four years of hard labor. Vannak survived in large part by honing his ability to tattoo his shipmates--a skill he possessed despite never having been trained in art. After five years away, Vannak was finally reunited with his family. Vannak documented his ordeal in raw, colorful, detailed illustrations, first created because he believed that without them no one would believe his story. The Dead Eye and the Deep Blue Sea is a testament to the lives of these many fishermen who are trapped on boats in the Indian Ocean."
