Walking which has been a solace for many during the pandemic, as the only form of permitted daily exercise, a momentary break from an endless news cycle, or a chance to socialise with friends at a distance. Walking can also be a form of social research. Walking through empty city streets, acting as witnesses to lonely landscapes, conjures an intimate connection to place and to how a body inhabits the world. Walking is bound up with memories, embedded in places and lived over again when walked through. Walking offers a sense of freedom for some, taking the mind and body to old and new places, or remind others of limitations of movement placed on them.
