Paul Strand in the Hebrides

Paul Strand visited South Uist in the Outer Hebrides in 1954 and his visit resulted in the book Tir a'Mhurain. This collection of photographs capture a moment in time of rural island community life and the wild open landscape in which they lived. Three of the sitters from the Hebrides series that were photographed as children talk about meeting Strand and their memories of South Uist in the 1950s.
