Inspired by this exhibition at Bradford, i decided to apply a similar methodology to a local walk, taking a photograph at precise intervals of every 1/4 of a mile.
I chose a square format to provide an ‘Instagram’ aesthetic, suggesting snaps taken at intervals along the way.
Key things i learned:
- The picturesque wooded areas felt like a significant part of the walk. The photographs suggest otherwise (the woods only feature in a couple)! Im reminded once again how our selectivity in choosing photpgraphic subjects so often distorts reality. Arguably this is a much more authentic portrayal of the walk.
- How much we miss in our everyday lives! There is always something of interest if we care to stop and look.
- Im unhappy with the ending, the water. Does not bring the set to a logical comclusion. Perhaps a closeup of removed boots or a pot of tea in a cafe would have neen better.
