This photo documentary covers some of the duties of the crew on the Rainbow Warrior III, owned and operated by Greenpeace and used in their activities such as environmental protests and scientific excursions. I embarked on the ship at the port of Algeciras (Andalusia) where it voyaged through the bay of Gibraltar, entered the Atlantic Ocean and sailed along the Portuguese coast, to Vilagarcia de Arousa (Galicia) where an Open Boat event took place. The crew is comprised of different nationalities, cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds coming together from around the world to inhabit this confined working space for the duration of three months.
