Rambles , 2016-19

During five years living in London, my hobby of walking turned into a passion for long distance rambles. Facilitated by the compact geography of a small island, coupled with thousands of miles of historically defined, legally protected public footpaths, walking between English cities is accessible in a way unimaginable in America. Rambling across the countryside, the walker is drawn into the English ideal of a rural, bucolic life. And yet the landscape is always changing. One is never very far from the next pub, the next town, the next high street, often with an accent awaiting you that was different from where you set out. Instead of motorways and service stations, footpaths and village pubs became the arteries which connected my experience of the country.
