Walking has always gone hand in hand with photography. It is a mode of travel like no other: you are completely reliant upon the strength and will of your own body but you are journeying slowly enough to stop, to look, to notice. It gives you strength - physically and mentally.
Often, walking becomes an exercise in looking; looking at your surroundings, looking at yourself and looking inside your own mind.
Of this practice, the pilgrimage is an ancient tradition which is experiencing a contemporary revival. Originally a religious custom of the more devout, the 21st century pilgrimage has become something different for many: a challenge, a way to connect with loved ones, a fun experience or holiday, or something spiritual.
