Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

For over 25 years Martin Parr has been taking photographs in Scotland. From the streets of Glasgow, to an island agricultural show on the Orkneys, Parr has built huge archive of photographs. Now for the first time these images are to be published in this upcoming book to co-incide with his Think of Scotland exhibition at the newly opened Aberdeen Art Gallery. This body of work is Parr's largest archive that has remained unpublished and weaves together some of the expected visual iconography of Scotland such as highland games and stunning landscapes, but all given the Parr twist that makes the expected look so unfamiliar.
