The rest of the story
Hiking and urban walking
I think most journeys are less about where you’re going and more about what happens while you’re getting there.
Camino del Norte
Every year, millions of pilgrims walk immense distances on historic paths in Spain – for personal, spiritual, physical and other reasons. Their destination is the Cathedral Santiago de Compostela, where the bones of St. James are claimed to be buried.
Over six weeks in 2022, I walked from St. Jean de Luz in France to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain, on the Camino del Norte. The Camino passes through the mountains along the northern coast of Spain, a distance of 847 kms.
My blog and photos can be seen here.
I began taking photos on my daily walks when the pandemic started. For nearly two years, every day, I documented the pandemic through a daily diary and through photographs taken on those walks.
Nearly 7,000 photos and 700+ journal entries later, the collection is a complete “picture” of one individual’s experience in an unprecedented time in our history.
The goal is simple: to see everyday, ordinary things differently, through the lens of a smartphone. The photos aren't always perfect. They're not always of beautiful things. But they capture a moment in time, and often document a city in transition.
