Walking and Photography

The activity of walking and photographing with other photographers dates back more than 100 years.

Discover the ritual of walking and how to incorporate this into your artistic practice to initiate new ideas and develop photographic work.

Throughout this course, we will discuss walking and photography as a meditative practice, the importance of getting lost, and gaining confidence.

“Many people nowadays live in a series of interiors...disconnected from each other. On foot everything stays connected, for while walking one occupies the spaces between those interiors in the same way one occupies those interiors. One lives in the whole world rather than in interiors built up against it.”
Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking
