October 2017 • ISBN 9781909266193 • Hardback • 224 pages • £25
DOUGLAS Corrance, renowned Scottish photographer, has compiled more than 50 years’ work into a sensational new art-quality book showcasing the uniquely magnificent Scottish capital.
Edinburgh: A Personal View in Photographs is Douglas’s response to a life spent in one of the world’s most fascinating cities; one which he would say is ‘made for photographers’.
Capturing the quintessential quirks of Edinburgh, its eccentricities and its many interesting characters, this book well serves a multi-faced city and will appeal to both the local citizen and the visitor, young and old.
The beautiful colour and black-and-white images are accompanied by Douglas’s lively and entertaining captions giving insight into how the photographer approaches his subject and how passionately he feels about the city he chose to make his home.
The book has been laid out as if it is an imagined walk around the city, starting from the castle, travelling down the Royal Mile, through the Old Town and then the New Town, with journeys into Holyrood Park, the West End and the northern communities of the Firth of Forth coastline. There is also a section dedicated to Edinburgh’s international reputation as the ‘Festival City’.
Throughout the hundreds of remarkable images included in this landmark publication, Douglas has succeeded in catching the indefinable essence that makes the place so special and memorable.
Anyone who has enjoyed a visit to the city will find this book a welcome reminder of Edinburgh’s undeniable charm.
Edinburgh: A Personal View in Photographs is available now from all good booksellers.
