A local businessman reopened a failed seafood-processing plant at Prospect Harbor, Maine, USA. Sherman Frank Merchant is the one whose work underpins the seafood industries here. In a battered black beret and with a cigarette always close at hand, Sherman Frank Merchant digs for clams, boiling some for his own dinner before heading to the seafood-processing factory at night. A man of few words, he silently sharpens instruments and cleans and organizes equipment for the day workers. Performed in silence and solitude, his routine prepares the factory for the chatter and bustle of the day.
