Anthropologie has launched the third season of the Anthropologist, an online space that supports the work of inspiring individuals, with a special installation by Scottish photographer David Eustace titled "Highland Heart." The photographer's project "In Search of Eustace" was featured in the 2009 debut of the Anthropologist, and he approached the retail giant's curators with the idea of documenting his native Scotland.

"The only brief I was given was that my project had to be something close to my heart. There is no other region in the world [than Scotland] that means more to me."

The Anthropologist updates on a monthly basis. Eustace's work will be the feature piece for a month, though it will continue to live on the site afterwards. EustaceScotland02.jpg 

"One of the unique things about Anthropologie is that it is a company full of artists, as well as one that works with artists in a multitude of ways," said a spokesperson for the brand.

"We have the luxury of constantly being exposed to incredible artists and their work. For the Anthropologist, we simply choose artists who truly move us and that we believe will move others as well." EustaceScotland01.jpg
