Into Nature

For the walker, paths, trails and bridleways represent freedom and they see them as a source of profound experience. In the city, paths are traversed as quickly as possible. In the countryside however, they are an experience in themselves. Seeing a path disappearing into the distance, over the horizon or around a bend can be a highly evocative experience. Paths can arouse curiosity,  conjure up memories of the past, or give rise to a deep sense of introspection. Paths are also the traces on the landscape of those that have passed through on foot previously. In this sense, each has its own story and by re-treading them we prevent them from eroding away and being forgotten.

Into nature was made during 30 short circular walks throughout the Sussex countryside.
