Between 2004 and 2010, Parr and his wife holidayed on the Scottish mainland and outlaying islands of Orkney, Shetland, Barra, Lewis and Islay, stopping frequently to photograph local Postboxes. Through Parr’s images, these isolated, red outposts of civilisation each take on a character and personality of their own, against the lonely yet beautiful Scottish backdrop.

“When you are in the middle of nowhere, in a bleak landscape and in wild weather, these little post boxes are strangely comforting, a sign that other people are around, that life is going on, and that you are connected to the world” – Susie Parr

Remote Scottish Postboxes is presented as a boxed, 88 page book, in which the postboxes are accompanied by maps and co-ordinates of their locations, with an introduction by Susie Parr.
