Vol II of the two-volume book from Alasdair McLellan, with a foreword by Bob Stanley and essay by Jo-Ann Furniss. Designed at M/M (Paris). Home and Away 1987-2002 is an idea of where somebody is from, where they travel to, and where, if they are the photographer Alasdair McLellan, they find themselves now after taking pictures for thirty-five years. These books fall somewhere between those two worlds, as does Alasdair McLellan himself. “I find myself thinking about the photos I took as a teenager in Doncaster (in South Yorkshire, England) and the various influences that inspired me to be a photographer in the first place. I suppose it’s a return to simpler times; it was just me and the subject rather than having thirty people standing behind me waiting for the picture to be taken, as it often is now. But at the heart of the pictures then and now, it’s still that same relationship—it’s only who or what you photograph that really matters.” Alasdair McLellan. Item #26185
