Alasdair McLellan book signing for Home and Away 1987-2022 vol I and II

Tuesday, Sep 12, 2023 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The brand new 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

“What are these books? The greatest hits? Not really. A double album? Sort of. A retrospective? Certainly, but not a definitive one. These books were nearly entitled The New Elizabethans as the last picture was taken just after Queen Elizabeth’s death in 2022 while all of the people in the pictures or the locations that appear are British. Yet that title seemed a little too narrow and far too royal. So, it’s Home and Away.”  AM
