A Different Country

Werner KisslingMichael Russell

$11.99

Hardback
When Werner Kissling died in a nursing home in Dumfries in 1988, few realized that he left behind him one of the most extensive photographic records of the Hebrides ever made. This collection includes over 100 of Kissling's Hebridean photographs.

- Publisher Werner Kissling visited the Western Isles in the early 1930s to make the first moving picture to use spoken Gaelic. He returned to Eriskay and South Uist almost every year until the war, taking hundreds of photographs, particularly of people involved in traditional crafts, making his work a valuable human record of the very last moments of an age-old way of life.
