I relish escorting people on short walks around a locale, either urban or rural. The walks are often part of a project/residency. I encouraging participants to look at the minutiae and overlooked aspects of life and our surroundings. These can prove to be quite revelatory experiences for the participants. This photo was working with a group from Bedford Creative Arts as part of The Excursionist; I also have fond memories of leading bike rides from The New Art Gallery Walsall, in search of rural Walsall on The Sliver Route. Let me know if you’d like me to conduct a walk, who knows where it will lead to!
