Review – Edinburgh: A Personal View in Photography

Bewitched by Edinburgh on a visit to the city as a young boy, Douglas Corrance captures his personal view in photographs that span five years.

With work published in Rolling Stone and National Geographic Traveller, Corrance turns his attention to the capital’s alluring charm in all its diversity.

Replete with architecture that reflects Edinburgh’s countless epochs of transformation, the book provides a visual tour of what the city has to offer.

Nothing is too grand for Corrance’s professional eye as he captures everything from the splendour of the Georgian New Town to the history of the medieval Old Town and the ordinary lives of city inhabitants.

With the capacity to surprise even the most seasoned visitor, his photographs expose the very nature of Edinburgh, uniquely diverse in its visual juxtapositions.

Edinburgh: A Personal View in Photography by Douglas Corrance, Forth Books, £25.
