'The voyage out is always a voyage inwards.'

The headline is a quotation from Robert Macfarlane's book, 'The Old Ways', published in 2012. It's a book about walking, memory, writing and writers. I have found it influential in the way it has focussed my efforts to document my walks in the area I live in.

As we step out from the places we live in, we walk familiar or unfamiliar routes, and as such, we have become part of the process of walking history. Rebecca Solent, in her book 'Wanderlust', states that '...walking has created paths, roads, trade routes [and] generated local and cross-continental senses of place.'

My preferred output medium is the printed zine; a low cost, DIY publishing format with a long history of radical independence. Experiment and innovation are important aspects of my creative practice and these, I feel, fit well into the playful spirit of zines.
