The Road Not Taken
Completed in 1986, the M25 travels only in a circle. At 117 miles around, and without a destination, the road forms an endless orbital highway. 'The Road Not Taken' was made as I walked around the edge of the M25 with a view camera. In a sense it felt something like following a river. The project explores the connections between place and non-place, and the practice of walking and photography. In a historical context the road leads somewhere, or onto another road. In contradiction, the M25 travels in an inevitable circle. A view camera was the photographic means of communicating the heightened state of awareness I walked with, and stilled the transient landscape of the M25 with a sense of quiet and clarity.
