Remote Scottish Postboxes

Remote Scottish Postboxes is Martin Parr’s first major contribution to landscape photography.

Between 2004 and 2010, Parr and his wife holidayed on the Scottish mainland and outlaying islands of Orkney, Shetland, Barra, Lewis and Islay, stopping frequently to photograph local Postboxes. Through Parr’s images, these isolated, red outposts of civilisation each take on a character and personality of their own, against the lonely yet beautiful Scottish backdrop.
