Colin McPherson was born in Edinburgh and began working professionally as a photographer in the late-1980s. His work specialises in documenting human intervention in social and natural environments as well as reportage on important ongoing political themes. His work is published internationally and he regularly shows his project work in both solo and group exhibitions. The acclaimed work to document the lives of Scotland’s last salmon net fishermen began in the mid-1990s and has extended from photographing initially on the east coast to take in locations all around the country.
