The Macallan, the luxury single malt whisky has commissioned Annie Leibovitz for the third edition of its Masters of Photography series. Shot against dramatic backdrops in and around New York City, Annie Leibovitz’s images feature renowned Scottish actor Kevin McKidd (best known for Grey’s Anatomy and Trainspotting) in “Macallan moments”.
“I am the first colour photographer chosen by The Macallan for its Master of Photography series. Prior to this I hadn’t realised how complicated and deep the distilling process is. That warmth and richness is what I tried to bring to the photographs. Kevin McKidd drove the imagery. Where Kevin comes from and his rugged good looks are what the photographs are all about. It wasn’t casting, it’s authentic.” shared Annie Leibovitz.
Limited edition to 1,000 bottles, with four different versions available, the Macallan Masters of Photography: Annie Leibovitz edition is available worldwide at an approximate RSP of £1700/$2750. Behind the scenes of The Macallan Masters of Photography after the jump.
