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.
