Hamish Fulton

Hamish Fulton (b. 1946, London) lives and works in Canterbury, Kent.  Fulton studied at Hammersmith School of Art, St Martin’s School of Art, and at the Royal College of Art. His time as a student and his journeys in South Dakota and Montana in 1969 encouraged him to think that art could be "how you view life," and not necessarily tied to the production of objects.  He began to make short walks, putting together photographic works about the experience of walking.  The act of walking has remained central to Fulton's practice- he has summed up this way of thinking in the simple statement of intent: "no walk, no work."
