With extraordinary images, The Soul of Scotland (Anam na H-Alba) presents a rich new portrait of a diverse and beautiful country, avoiding the cliched photographs of the same old castles and postcard views repeated in so many books on the subject. In this glorious book, divided into sections on city, countryside and wilderness, 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. The pictures are spectacular and exquisite, haunting and immediate; lovers of Scotland will see new perspectives in the way that Milligan observes the textured details of wilderness and cityscape, farmland and suburb, and highlights the variety of people who inhabit these places and their distinct cultural styles. 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, all of Scotland is recorded here with drama, tenderness and wry humour.

Max Milligan is a fine art photographer who eschews the use of flash, filters and manipulation, preferring to rely on the capture of natural or available light and the relationship between the eye and the moment. A Scot himself, this is the first time he's turned his lens on his native land. The Soul of Scotland is his fifth book, following on from his memorable and highly successful photographic portrayals of Peru, Ghana and Lebanon. Renowned for his painterly style, his work hangs in corporate and private collections worldwide, including 27 pieces in the prestigious Deutsche Bank collection in London.
