British photographer Alasdair McLellan is releasing a new book, Ceremony, which celebrates the 10th anniversary of his 2006 work depicting ceremonial troops from the British Army.

Although the project took place almost exactly a decade ago, the shoot has become one of McLellan’s defining photoshoots. “During the time of initially working on Ceremony – mainly the month of August 2006 – we were very fortunate in making the acquaintance of some of the most remarkable people we have ever met,” Jo-Ann Furniss explained, who penned the introduction to the book. “Many of those that we spoke to and photographed proved to be incredibly kind, tough, polite, idealistic, hilarious and generous… We will not forget them.”

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity will benefit from the limited-edition, 2000-copy release with all proceeds going to the charity that supports soldiers, veterans and their families.

Ceremony will be available to purchase through: (Paris) The Broken Arm, Ofr and Colette; (London) Idea Books at Dover Street Market; (New York) Dashwood Books and Idea Books at Dover Street Market; and online.
