‘Undertow’ documents the changing relationship between an islander and her home, as Frances Scott walks the coastlines of Orkney, an archipelago situated near the north coast of Scotland where the North Sea meets the Atlantic.

An undertow is a current beneath the surface that sets seaward - something which will take hold of you and pull you in, but only if you make the decision to put your feet into the water. This book - a collection of photographs, handwritten notes and map-routes - considers the nature of belonging, and how it can be formed anew, by walking the brink where land meets sea.
