Seven Walks in a Holy City (2011 )

 

Walking , playing and collecting photographs in the city of Jerusalem during October 2011.

 

Cards picked out at the outset of each day define where the walk starts from and the theme for the day. A die tossed at the starting point of each walk, and then at regular intervals throughout it, dictates directions to walk in and another die dictates how often a photo is taken.

The walks were documented online in dedicated blog as well a film 7 walks in 28 Minutes  (2013). An unlimited edition of Postcards from a Holy City (2013) is available to purchase via Editions page.
