Rankin captures a taste of single malt whisky
Thursday 15 April 2010
Sepia tone snapshots by famous Scottish photographer Rankin, inspired by a famous Scottish whisky, have been published in a book which forms a “photographic essay” of the beautiful three-hundred-year-old estate responsible for Macallan Single Malt Whisky.
The 1,000 image series of the estate, which overlooks the river Spey and dates back to the 1700s, was taken on a Polaroid camera, which lends it an archaic and rustic edge in keeping with the whisky’s brand.
Rankin was commissioned to be the first to take part in a project called ‘The Macallan Masters of Photography’, and his work will be available in a special edition book called ‘Rankin: A Photographic Essay of the Macallan Estate.’
A Photographic Essay of The Macallan Estate (£40) is available to purchase from www.themacallan.com from May, 2010.
