Tracks

4 of 16 photos of tracks made through the snow.

Moving on from using snow as a canvas to draw on I’ve recently become interested in it as a automatic material. In Richard Long’s 1969 piece A Line Made by Walking he marked a line into a field by repeatedly walking over the grass, it spoke of the universal human nature of walking, it was minimal and elegant which almost contradicted its very human subject matter. This year’s snow afforded me the opportunity to capture a much more personal record of walking, of small individual narratives, dog walkers, rambles, families, a sense of community rather than Long’s sense of a species.
