South West Coast Path & The West Country

Polperro, in Cornwall, England, has been a fishing village since the 14th century. But new problems are facing the traditional smallboat fishery, and 88-year-old fisherman Bill Cowan, explains the dilemmas. I first photographed Bill in 1992 during an assignment here for Islands Magazine.

This is the village where my great, great, great grandfather was a ship's carpenter. The rest of my mother's family came from the next village down the coast.

Principal photography with Nikon D7000. A few clips with the Sony NEX VG 10, and Sony NEX 5.
