Sometimes a photographic publication comes along that perfectly portrays its subject…with extraordinary images showing a diverse and beautiful country, The Soul of Scotland (Anam na h-alba – in Gaelic) is evocative, dramatic and atmospheric and does exactly that. Showing life from the city to the remote countryside in all its diversity; from welders in a Rosyth shipyard, to Glasgow’s vibrant streetlife at night and on to the crofter combing his highland cattle at the Islay Show. Internationally acclaimed photographer, Max Milligan, turns his artist’s eye on the glens, lochs, villages, towns, islands, peat bogs, beaches and mountains of his native land, from Shetland to The Borders. For lovers of Scotland or indeed anyone who appreciates exquisite photography that observes the textured details of wilderness and cityscape, farmland and suburb, and highlights the variety of inhabitants and the everyday that makes for a striking image when captured by someone like Milligan, then this is a must-have publication.
