The Herring Trail was commissioned by Creative Scotland, based on the poem The Herrin’ Trail by Rita Bradd as part of my summer residency at McArthur’s Store in Dunbar. I spent 3 months there over the summer, working with the fishermen using wet plate collodion (a photographic process from 1851). This film has scant relation to that, as I’ve used film given to me by the British Council, which is deliberately digitally extrapolated.
