Collective: Edinburgh's Disgrace Merch

Known locally as ‘Edinburgh’s Disgrace’, the National Monument on Calton Hill was left half-finished when the money ran out. Today it stands as a familiar classical silhouette, forever under construction yet somehow complete, both a symbol of home for many and the stage scenery for countless selfies.

To celebrate a phrase fondly used by Edinburgh locals, Collective Matter has worked with artist Mick Peter to create a range of products in praise of folly.

I worked with Collective to shoot the range, we used members of the staff team to model. I love this range and had a great time with Eric and Lara creating the look to promote it.
