We Make the Path by Walking

We Make the Path by Walking

Over the past year I have walked over 3,500 kilometers with the aim of creating a body of work which explores the idea of walking as a form of meditation. My intention has been to create a series of quiet, meditative images, which would evoke the experience of being immersed in nature and capture the essence of what has turned out to be quite a spiritual journey. I wanted my images to engage the viewer in this walk, and to communicate a sense of the subtle internal and psychological changes which one may undergo while negotiating the landscape.
