Join us at stills for the launch of the new publication by Robbie Lawrence ‘Long Walk Home‘ followed by a Q&A with Stills Director Ben Harman.

For the past five years Robbie Lawrence has travelled throughout Scotland and the United States photographing the Highland Games. Long Walk Home examines the cultural significance of the traditional community sports tournament and questions the very notion of what it is to be from a place.
