Hamish Fulton (revisited)

It has occurred to me that when I did a previous blog post about both Richard Long and Hamish Fulton, I had not included an image from Hamish Fulton. It is similar in tone to Richard Long, but his style is to have the writing covering the image as opposed to having it below the image.

'Wind through the Pines', 1985, 1991

As I’ve said before, his images (although he is a fairly competent photographer) are often a by-product of the walk and it is the journey that he takes and details, that is paramount (it is about what the experience gives you as opposed to a physical product such as the image).
