In the early 1990s, photojournalist Colin McPherson embarked on a project that would take him to the heart of one of Scotlandâ€™s fast disappearing communities - the salmon net fishermen. Since then, he has spent many days - and nights - photographing them at work. The result to date is over 180 stunning color and black and white images. Shot on the panoramic beaches of north east Scotland, this documentary film weaves together the story of the demise of the salmon netting industry with that of Colinâ€™s creative journey.
