Walking as Storytelling – Recovering Narrative from Landscape —
“What you think you are looking at on that long road to the past is actually beside you where you stand.” – John Berger
Our daily journeys within a landscape trace innumerable movements of passage. Even when walking alone upon a pavement, our footsteps plot an indelible pattern left by those who walked before and those who will walk after. This kinship of motion is a reconstruction or re-enactment of travel. The landscape is a book and each track and trail a line of prose. By walking, we are both reader and author.
