Hamish Fulton, Arkle Sutherland, 1976.

Fulton has described himself as a ‘walking artist’, and his work derives from the experience of specific walks he has made. ‘If I do not walk, I cannot make a work of art’, he has said. He regards image and text as equally important in recording the landscape, location and duration of the walk. The photograph in this work depicts Ben Arkle, a mountain in the Scottish highlands, which formed part of a three day walk.

Thomas Struth, National Gallery I, London 1989, 1989

In the late 1980s the German artist Thomas Struth began an ongoing series of large format colour photographs taken in famous European and American museums. Like the earlier street scenes and group portraits, the museum photographs reflect his desire to make carefully considered images which present the scene before the camera in an objective way. In interviews he has stated that his work is ‘less about expanding the possibilities of photography than about a truer perception of things.’ [Tate]
