"Ephemeral" is an apt way to describe some of the landscape art photographed by Allan Pollok-Morris during his five-year odyssey in Scotland. Other times, there’s an impenetrable permanence to it. Countless photographs later, we have Close: Landscape Design and Land Art in Scotland, a book of works from artists both native and foreign that captures the challenge and beauty of landscape design in the rugged Scottish countryside.
We’re holding an exhibition of Pollok-Morris’ photographs in our Ross Gallery right now. It runs through March 16. Check out our interview with the artist here, accompanied by a few images from the gallery. —MN
