About Remote Scottish Postboxes
This book is Martin Parr’s first major contribution to landscape photography. Between 2004 and 2010, Parr and his wife holidayed on the Scottish mainland and also outlaying islands of Orkney, Shetland, Barra, Lewis and Islay, stopping frequently to photograph local Postboxes. These isolated, red outposts of civilisation each take on a character and personality of their own through Parr's images. Against the lonely yet beautiful Scottish backdrop. “When you are in the middle of nowhere, in a bleak landscape and also in wild weather, these little post boxes are strangely comforting. They are a sign that other people are around, that life is going on, and that you are still connected to the world” – Susie Parr Remote Scottish Postboxes is presented as a boxed, hand-stitched, 88 page book, in which the postboxes are accompanied by maps and co-ordinates of their locations, also with an introduction by Susie Parr.
