Some people may not like Scotland’s misty northern climate, but, notes the AnOther blog, Martin Parr apparently isn’t one of them. Between 2004 and 2010, Parr and his wife holidayed in Shetland, Barra, Lewis, Islay, and the Orkney islands, where the Magnum photographer became fascinated by the iconic red postboxes. The result is the new book Remote Scottish Postboxes, a study of severely beautiful landscapes into which the comforting red boxes incongruously appear.
