Walk in Wonder
Project idea for a bookwork on walking as an art-form. Walking is one part of my practicing life whereby I: Meditate, Read, Walk, Write, Make, Teach and Speak. Titled “Walk in Wonder”, the images will be of trails as lines and forms on and in their ground of landscape. While the pictures will be physical single track trails, the passages and phrases the will be of the inner experience, the inscape within the walker. Writers and philosophers (Solnit and Nietzsche, for example) have always walked to clarify their thoughts and imagery. Trail photography has parallels with street photography and the urban flaneur. In both cases the path is the destination, not a means to the end. The impressions just as fast and momentary in nature as on a busy street. Each time and place is a unique moment of life passing by.
