Picture of Eye on the Street, An

Publisher's Description

In the late 1960s, twenty-one year old David Peat created a portfolio of photographs to gain entry to the film business. Peat who was regarded as a leading cinematographer and documentary film maker, gave permission for Renaissance Press to publish these remarkable images which have remain unseen by the public for forty years.

The Glasgow photographed in 1968 has long gone, but the sights and smells of that time still exist in the recollections of those who lived as children in the streets and back courts of Gorbals, Tradeston, Maryhill and beyond. The black and white photographs in this book can still sharpen the memory as no other medium can.

By David Peat. Contributors Alan Spence, Robin Gillanders, David Bruce, Billy Connolly

Picture of Scotland’s Landscapes: The National Collection of Aerial Photography

Publisher's Description

As the glaciers of the last Ice Age receded, humans ventured into the far north, exploring a wild, fertile territory. Nomadic hunter-gatherers at first, they made the decision to stay for good – to farm and to build.

The landscapes they lived on were remarkable in their diversity. Vast forests of pine and birch ran through one of the world’s oldest mountain ranges – once as high as the Himalayas but over millennia scoured and compressed by sheets of ice a mile thick. On hundreds of islands around a saw-edged coastline, communities flourished, linked to each other and the wider world by the sea, the transport superhighway of ancient times. It was a place of challenges and opportunity. A place we know today as Scotland.

Over the past 10,000 years, every inch of Scotland – whether remote hilltop, fertile floodplain, or storm-lashed coastline – has been shaped, changed and moulded by its people. No part of the land is without its human story. From Orkney’s immaculately preserved Neolithic villages to Highland glens stripped of nineteenth century settlements, from a Skye peninsula converted to an ingenious Viking ‘shipyard’, to a Hebridean clifftop used as the site of a spectacular lighthouse, Scotland’s history is written into the land in vivid detail.

Scotland’s Landscapes tells the enduring story of this interaction between man and his environment. Stunning new imagery from the National Collection of Aerial Photography comes together to build up a picture of a dramatic terrain forged by thousands of years of incredible change. These are Scotland’s landscapes as you have never seen or understood them before.

Picture of Photography of Victorian Scotland

Publisher's Description

This is the first book to provide a full and coherent introduction to the photography of Victorian Scotland. There are many books which deal with particular elements and individual photographers, which show the interest in the subject, but no book draws everything together to provide an understanding of the multi-faceted nature of photography and the inter-relationship with other activities in the society of the time. This authoritative introduction, building upon these other publications, will provide a wide-ranging appreciation of early Scottish photography and in particular that Scottish photography was in the vanguard of many international trends. The material has been structured and the topics organised, with appropriate illustrations, as both a readable narrative and a foundation text for the subject.

Key Features

  • Draws together a coherent narrative of the many different aspects of photography in Victorian Scotland
  • Shows how photography was related to, and was influenced by, the society and culture of the time
  • Highlights how Scotland and Scots were in the forefront of photography in Victorian times
  • Uses the most apt illustrations to emphasise the quality of the image-making

Picture of Scotland's Heritage: A photographic journey

Publisher's Description

Scotland’s Heritage is a unique book. It combines John Hannavy’s stunning and original photography of Scotland with an engaging narrative on the country’s evolution from 4000 BC to the present day, using both the author’s own account of his travels with those of the great travel writers of the past who have explored and been moved by its landscape, architecture and people.

Scotland is a country steeped in history, and blessed with a rich and varied heritage set in a stunning landscape. It is a photographer’s paradise with light which can change a hundred times a day, each revealing a new aspect of the place. Throughout the country, marks reveal the lives of those who have lived before us over past millennia, while today’s landscape is dotted with the remains of buildings erected, enjoyed, altered and abandoned over the past centuries.

Scotland’s Heritage illustrates some of the country’s often-turbulent history by offering a view of the places and the buildings where that history was played out. The text and pictures in the book are arranged thematically with sections entitled The marks left by men; The land of the mountain and the flood; Great houses and humble dwellings; Churches, rituals and monuments; The land of a thousand castles; One thousand years of industry and Living and working by the sea.

Travel writers from the last 400 years such as William Camden, Boswell & Johnson, Thomas Pennant, Daniel Defoe and H.V. Morton have all contributed their views on what Sir Walter Scott called ‘the land of the mountain and the flood’. The land they journeyed through and the experience of travel then was very different to what we know today, and quotations from their erudite, informative and often amusing observations are used to contrast their Scotland with ours.

Picture of Dust to Dust

"Dust to Dust" draws inspiration from early still life painting and recent discoveries in
quantum physics both of which tell us, metaphorically and scientificaly respectively, that
we are a small part of a vast interconnected cosmos and part of that infinite expanse
resides inside each and every one of us. Drawn from an archive of 8 years work in the
Western Isles of Scotland, "Dust to Dust"  juxtaposes images of former dwellings slowly
being decomposed by the elements with images of found books in various states of
Disintegration.
Adrian Tyler

"Tyler enjoys a considerable visual return from photographing the remains of this “bookwreck”...
Nonetheless, he gains an even greater symbolic return from this catastrophe,
as from the wounded memorials that are these now almost illegible books, mere objects
whose substance has withered, Tyler manages to express a moral lesson, which
transforms his photographs into true Vanitas, one of the primary intentions of this artistic
genre that would later be called the still life. In my opinion, precisely at this time of moral
gravity, Tyler’s photography achieves its most profound beauty and above all, or if you
wish, more so, his most complete understanding of what this art has become in our
days, so defined by time; so, indeed, “dust to dust”, “only time will tell”. Is this not
perhaps the finest testimony to our beauty"
from the text by Francisco Calvo Serraller

Limited edition of 500. Beautiful colour images of abandoned dwellings in the Western Isles and of books found there.

Picture of IAN HAMILTON FINLAY - Two Gardens - SOLITUDE AND RENUNCIATION
Publisher's Description
The sacred grove of antiquity was an enchanted spot for quiet contemplation, where mortals could commune with the gods. This tradition continues to resonate in the two extraordinary gardens created by the Scottish poet, artist and gardener Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925–2006): Little Sparta on the windswept heaths of Scotland’s Pentland Hills, and the garden Fleur de l’Air in the midst of ancient olive terraces in Provence, France. The Little Sparta garden was begun in 1966 and today harbors some 275 poetic artworks and sculptures. Its name alludes to Edinburgh’s epithet: »Athens of the North«. In 2004, Scottish artists and art experts chose Little Sparta as the nation’s premier artwork.

Little Sparta is open to visitors during the summer months, while the newer Fleur de l’Air, created in 1994, remains closed to the public. Hungarian photographer Sam Rebben captured both gardens in lovely images that invite viewers to immerse themselves in the interplay between nature and culture, and in the exceptional garden poetry of Ian Hamilton Finlay.

Picture of Above Scotland - Cities (From the National Collection of Aerial Photography)
Publisher's Description

The past two centuries have marked the age of the city in Scotland. Powered by industrial growth and driven by social change, much of the nation has been transformed from the rural to the urban. But the stories of our cities began long before this. From ancient origins to the construction of some of the world’s most fascinating architecture, through hardships of war, fire, disease and economic depression to innovative programmes of urban renewal, Scotland’s cities bear the scars and boast the treasures of thousands of years of incredible progress and change.

Across the central belt, vast, brash Glasgow meets classically austere Edinburgh. Dundee, a city built by an old Empire, now thrives on new technology. In the granite shadows of Aberdeen, a vibrant trader community has been changed forever by the arrival of the oil barons.  And then there are Scotland’s newest cities: Stirling, once a centre of royal power, and Inverness, the urban gateway to a rugged Highland landscape.

Stunning aerial photography dating from the 1920s to the present day tells the compelling stories of Scotland’s six cities from a unique and illuminating perspective. And for the first time – in a special dedicated section – readers can view images in 3D, with stunning details rising up out of the page, from the imposing rocky heights of Edinburgh and Stirling, to the ordered grid-iron canyons of central Glasgow.

Picture of Victorian Scotland

Publisher's Description

The Victorians were the harbingers of the modern age, their society driven by curiosity, a zeal for invention, and an enormous appetite for economic and imperial consumption. The boiler room of the era was stoked furiously, and its frequent combustions produced advances in everything from science and philosophy to industry and architecture.

By the end of the nineteenth century, Scotland was a nation transformed. Glasgow had exploded into the second city of the Empire, the majestic Forth Bridge was celebrated as a wonder of the modern world, and railways had opened the remote Highlands to new industries of leisure and tourism. But for every grand museum or gothic-revival country house, tenements and slums rose in their thousands – overcrowded living for the vast army of workers that sustained the great Victorian machine. Ambition and wealth saw social divisions become ever more acute, producing a society obsessed with class hierarchy.

Now, for the first time, RCAHMS is showcasing images from its National Collection in a remarkable illustration of this landmark era. From the pioneering work of photographers like John Forbes White, William Donaldson Clark, Thomas Annan and Harry Bedford Lemere, to never before seen excerpts from private family albums, Victorian Scotland is a window on the lives of the generation who changed the world.

Picture of Photographers of the Western Isles
Publisher's Description
When the internationally renowned photographer Paul Strand visited South Uist in 1954 to create a series of powerful portraits and landscape views for his book Tir a’ Mhurain, he was not alone in singling out the Western Isles for photographic attention. As early as 1843, when David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson portrayed John Francis Campbell of Islay, the camera was employed to represent Hebridean subjects. This book discusses why and how photographers have been drawn to these fascinating islands, and the ways in which photographic images have been created and viewed within Hebridean communities from the late nineteenth century onward. The book features the work of photographers such as Captain F.W.L. Thomas of the Admiralty Survey, who created the first images of St Kilda in 1860, and George Washington Wilson, whose topographical images of the Highlands and Islands formed an integral part of a photographic business that developed a worldwide reach. Later photographers, such as Margaret Fay Shaw, Alasdair Alpin MacGregor, Werner Kissling and Erskine Beveridge, documented a distinctive way of life in the isles that had largely disappeared from mainland Britain, leaving a legacy of wonderful photographs that inspire as well as inform.

Picture of Hebrides - An Aerial View of a Cultural Landscape
Publisher's Description
The Hebrides of Scotland – around 500 diverse islands – form the north-western Atlantic fringe of Europe. This book surveys the cultural landscape of this dramatically beautiful, complex and conflicted area, with emphasis on what may be interpreted through aerial photography.

Mobile maritime cultures flourished throughout the Hebrides from prehistoric times, including Mesolithic builders of wheelhouses, coracle-borne monastic travellers, Norse in longships and Lords of the Isles in birlinns. A prominent feature of the recent history of the Hebrides has been depopulation. The history and heartbreak of this phenomenon, experienced in differing degrees in rural areas throughout Europe from the mid-18th century, is clearly shown in aerial photographs and discussed by co-authors Angus and Patricia MacDonald. Today’s Hebridean landscapes have been heavily modified by various forms of human land use; current land-management options and controversies are also explored in the context of photographs that draw attention to the various issues involved.

Angus and Patricia Macdonald have collaborated for over twenty years on the record and interpretation of the history and current state of the environment and of cultural landscapes, using aerial photography as the main tool. Their partnership, Aerographica, works from a sound basis of research and maintains a substantial archive of relevant aerial images. They are the authors, jointly or singly, of ten books, five of which are based on aerial photography. They live in Musselburgh, East Lothian.

Picture of Scotland’s Mountains - A Landscape Photographer’s View

Publisher's Description
Following the success of Scotland’s Coast, Joe Cornish trains his lens on another outstanding feature of the country for which he holds so much affection – its mountains. He sets out to capture the unique character of each range, from the soaring peaks of the Southern Highlands in the south to the fortress-like Assynt hills in the far north; from the Cuillin of Skye, almost Alpine in appearance, to the lofty Cairngorms, with their jewel-like ice formations. With a masterly use of light, Joe depicts not only the peaks and ridges, the cliffs and buttresses of each range, but the corresponding valleys and glens, and the lochs, burns and waterfalls that are as integral to the landscape as the mountains themselves. Accompanying the images are Joe’s fascinating accounts of the physical and creative challenges he faced in order to capture them. The result is one of the most acutely observed and inspirational portraits of Scotland’s mountains ever published. It will delight not only Joe Cornish’s many admirers but anyone who is drawn to this most magical of landscapes.

They were given digital Canon SLRs and told to shoot whatever they wanted...These 365 images formed a visual diary or portrait of what life is like in the Highlands & Islands in the 21st century. Participants included a mix of well known Highland personalities, such as chart topping DJ Mylo from Skye, World Curling Champion Ewan MacDonald from Inverness, the Academy award winning actress Tilda Swinton from Nairn, as well as some less known faces. All provided their unique insight into Highland & Island life. Alongside this were portraits of all the participants themselves, all shot on traditional monochrome film using a Mamiya medium format camera. These portraits are touring throughout 2009-2010 to various locations with all 365 images taken by the participants themselves.
