8am Walks

Photo Series

- Ongoing

‘The Banal, the quotidian, the obvious, the common, the ordinary, the infra-ordinary, the background noise, the habitual? (…) How are we to speak of these common things, how to track them down, how to flush them out, wrest them from the dross in which they are mired, how to give them meaning, a tongue, to let them, finally, speak of what it is, who we are.’
- Georges Perec, Species of Spaces, 1974

8am Walks began as a creative exercise in London in 2014 and has since evolved into a long-term walking and photography project in Berlin. The exercise and corresponding photography archive spans seven years and many different paths within this city. It is an exercise with simple self-governing instructions: leave the house at 8am with a camera and walk.

Photographs from this series have been exhibited in London, Berlin, Kyiv, Milan, and Orlando since 2017. The series won the ReA! Art Prize in Milan in 2020, was shortlisted for the Signature Art Prize in London in 2019, and was published in FRESH EYES: New European Photography in Amsterdam in 2020.
