“I have found what I came for, whatever it was!”
—journal entry from the end of my first pilgrimage
Between 2009 and 2014, I walked three of the world’s most important pilgrimages—in Spain, Japan and France—travelling over 2500 kilometers by foot. The photographs in “Summer Grasses” are from my third pilgrimage, the 700 kilometer route from Le Puy-en-Velay to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the south of France. The work shows changes in the land, light, weather and spirit during thirty-four days of walking.
