Tir A'Mhurain - The Outer Hebrides of Scotland - Paul Strand

Title: Tir A'Mhurain - The Outer Hebrides of Scotland - Paul Strand
Posted by: admin on 30-06-2010

Discussion: I just recently bought this for my mum for her birthday and from what my dad tells me, it hasn't changed much over the years.

There are some images also available that are not in the book which can be found on the internet.

Available from Amazon:

'At last, a new edition of Paul Strand's beautifully sequenced photographs from his 1954 visit to the rugged island of South Uist, off the west coast of Scotland. Juxtaposing people and the landscape, these staggering beautiful images depict the timeless complicity he saw between humankind and nature in this wild terrain. In the spirit of La France de Profil and Un Pases: Portrait of an Italian Valley, these meditative photographs celebrate the wholesome beauty of everyday life. Whether it is a view of rocks and the sea, of scudding clouds hanging over a seaside hamlet, or the proud figure of an earthbound fisherman before his stone cottage, Strand's transcendent images render the island and its inhabitants timeless and eternal.'
