Details: Product Description Elliott Erwitt turns his trained eye on Scotland, going well beyond its picturesque glens and lochs to reveal a unique culture and national heritage. In 2013, Elliott Erwitt was asked to be a part of the distinguished Macallan Masters of Photography series. Armed with his trusty Leica camera, he embarked on an exploration of Scotland in hope of capturing its people's particular spirit and allure, calling it his "great Scottish adventure." Going beyond what is simply picturesque, this magnificent collection of photographs candidly reveals both the sum and its parts of the varied landscapes, the characters-and of course, the dogs!-that are unique to Scotland.
