This book represents a walk that took place in September 2015 from St.Ives to Zennor on the Cornish coast. The aim of this project is an exploration. I wanted to see if it was possible to describe an experience in the natural world without using traditional images of Landscape.
I have tried to represent more abstract aspects such as a change in weather, or the waves crashing below. In a traditional guide book, the reader would be provided with maps and photographic images. I am hoping that by never satisfying the readers visual curiosity to see images of the Land, I will instead engage their curiosity.
The image themselves change medium and style throughout the book. This represents the ever changing landscape on the walk. I used a variety of papers and mediums. From underwater photography to Acrylic and oil paints, I used whichever medium best suited the emotion I was trying to express.
I really enjoyed working in this way and I am hoping to continue on the project. This book was the based on one afternoons walk, but I would like to apply the concept to a much longer walk in a less familiar destination. I feel this idea has a lot of potential for future projects.
