A Voice Above the Linn (SIGNED) By Robbie Lawrence

In A Voice Above the Linn, Robbie documents the estate of botanist, climate activist and gardener Jim Taggart, located in the West Coast of Scotland. Jim discovered that the region’s subtropical climate allowed him to grow plants and flowers from all over the world – thanks to his work, Linn is now a place of incredible biodiversity. As Jim got older, his son Jamie took over the more physical elements of maintaining the garden, including trips abroad to research and gather new specimens. On one journey to a northern, mountainous region in Vietnam, Jamie disappeared. His body was found years later. He had fallen in one of the mountain’s higher passes. The garden is now kept in memory of Jamie.

In A Voice Above the Linn, Robbie brings together images made while visiting Jim, documenting the space across all four seasons. The book is already on its second printing and features four works by renowned poet John Burnside, written in response to Robbie’s images.
