Do these books make a double album of greatest hits? A retrospective? It's not really wholly one or the another, but both have useful elements borrowed here to help to mark the photographer's career to date. McLellan originally considered calling the books The New Elizabethans because the final photograph in the collection dates to the time of the death of the Queen in 2022. However, McLellan found this title too restrictive and excessively regal, leading to the idea of HOME and AWAY – the idea of where somebody is from, where they travel to, and, if they are the photographer Alasdair McLellan, where they find themselves now after taking pictures for 35 years. These books fall somewhere between those two worlds, as does McLellan himself.
