Globally respected for his photographic work, Danish-born Søren Solkær is particularly noted for his iconic portraits of world-famous musicians, including Bjork, The White Stripes, Franz Ferdinand, The Arctic Monkeys and REM. Cinematic in tone and revealing a distinctive colour palette, Søren’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the world.
In 2016, we commissioned Søren to help us bring the Highland Park brand vividly to life through his lens. During the time he spent with us in Orkney, Søren got to know the different members of our distillery team and captured them at work. The result is a collection of over 250 images that both reveal the whisky-making traditions we’ve followed for over 220 years and reflect the stark beauty of the Orcadian landscape that is our home.
Inspired by this collaboration and our appreciation of Søren as a genuine modern day Viking Soul, we began working with him to develop a special edition of Highland Park, celebrating 26 years of his extraordinary career. We look forward to sharing more information with you later in May.
