"Lewis and Harris" Photobook

‘Lewis and Harris” make up the largest part the Outer Hebrides, the Archipel which is located in the Atlantic around 60km north west of the shores of Scotland. The ocean, cold as ice, presents itself in all shades of blue, reaching from a light blue to a royal blue then an hysterical cyan which fades into a grey blue while its white froth drapes itself around the rocky coastline. The ceaseless roaring of the wind covers the landscape like a blanket. Trees and bushes are a rare find but, surprisingly, the odd palm tree pops up now and again in some of the front yards across the island. Vegetation is limited on the Outer Hebrides as peat, moors and the naked, black, shimmering red rocks take centre stage on this barren land.

Alongside the capital city of Stornaway, hamlets and little courtyards are found scattered across the island. The characteristic monotonous architecture made up of sandy brown and grey waterproof concrete is functional not designer based. On occasion though, a bright yellow or red rooftop will peek out from the mossy brown landscape.

As this is a book with primarily photographic content, we see our target audience in those who are interested in travel, landscapes and photography.

These photographs have now being turned into a Photobook called „Lewis and Harris“ which we were lucky enough to publish with KERBER Publishing in Berlin, Germany. In the Photobook, we take you with us on our journey across the Outer Hebrides with a series of landscape photographs we took all over the Isles.

We have created a kickstarter Campagne to help us spread the word on our project and raise some of our productions costs.

As a thank you for your believe in our project, you will receive either a signed book, fine art prints or a postcard. We appreciate even the smallest support even if it is just sharing this link.
