To mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns we produced a major exhibition and accompanying publication featuring a series of portraits of Scots and adopted Scots prominent in their field. Each sitter was asked to produce a small body of text, a response to a Burns quote communicating their own view of the relevance of Burns today. This unique, innovative photographic project aimed to heighten awareness and appreciation of Robert Burns whilst showcasing the talents of some of today’s most noteworthy Scots. The blend of considered responses from the sitters and the use of contemporary portraiture produces a body of work that is interesting, informative, engaging, amusing and thought provoking. It opened at the Scottish Parliament on Burns night and was exhibited extensively in Scotland including at the National Galleries and traveled to Brussels and Australia clocking up some 320,000 visitors. The sitters include Peter Capaldi, Eddie Reader, Edwin Morgan, Peter Howson, Denise Mina and Janice Galloway. The accompanying publication designed by the Leith Agency is available from Amazon and Luath Press.
