For Hamish Fulton, walking is an art form, which he documents in photographs. A photograph of 'Mount,Thor'' taken on a 130 km hike in the Canadian arctic,shows the steepest rock face on Earth. His epic,treks enable Fulton to free himself from everyday,experience and standard thinking patterns. He,thereby acquiesces to a slowing down of time,,wherein landscape becomes meditative space.
