Malcolm Baker aged 70, is the last professional fisherman on the Rame Peninsula in Cornwall. He is nicknamed The Paul Newman of Cawsand. He still fishes with hand-made lobster pots, wooden boats and nets and keeps tradition alive with skills passed down from generations before. I learnt about him when I attended a film and talk about him led by Leo Kesslerer on November 7th 2017. It was an extraordinarily moving experience. Malcolm, a man out of his time, is without an apprentice to pass his profound knowledge to. He meets Leo a youth worker from the Tyrol in Austria. Through Leo Malcolm becomes part of a project where young struggling adults from across Europe came to Cawsand to share Malcolm’s skills and learn to bond with each other. The resonance of the work was such that I traveled to the Rame Peninsula to find traces of Malcolm, I looked out to sea for Malcolm from Rame Head and mooched around the villages of Cawsand and Kingsand but did not find him. I do not imagine that if I had have found him I would have wished to disturb him. However, I did find traces of the man and 2 villages and an industry that have been subjected to immense change. Images and texts are being assembled to form a booklet about Malcolm’s story. Below are a few images from the film and some of my own. I regard this journey as one that continually extends across time and place. I think of Malcolm every time I hear the shipping forecast on Radio 4 and send thoughts out to him and all fishermen.
