The Isle of Rust - A Portrait of Lewis & Harris

from 20.00

“The unsurpassable strangeness of the island resides in the chasmic gulf between the naturally evolved and the negligently created, between Scarp and scrap, between the sublime and the substandard.”

Jonathan Meades Writer, journalist and film-maker

Jonathan Meades and photographer Alex Boyd present a unique exploration of 'The Isle of Rust', better known as Lewis and Harris. A decade on from Meades' landmark series 'Off Kilter', described by The Telegraph as 'a masterpiece', Boyd returns to the island, spending two years living and working, documenting the stunning landscapes of the Outer Hebrides, a strange, sometimes rusty paradise.

Alongside Meades' insightful observations and explorations of the island, Boyds photography captures the rugged and austere beauty of the place, from the bays and mountains of Harris, to the unique moorland shacks of Lewis.

With 150 new images, the book is complemented by an essay by Professor Dan Hicks of Oxford University which explores the legacy of man on the land, and what we can learn from how islanders have lived alongside what has been left behind.
