Journeys, Roaming deep in lands

Land moves. A slow gradual change,
invisible to human sensation.
Even so, a landscape morphs under
human perception with each visit.
Vision, touch and smell are ingrained
in our familiarity with nature and bring
that connection closer to the mind.
Following through the sequential landscapes,
Journeys, Roaming deep in lands acts as
a guide to a personal walking journey.
Georgios Chatzakis aims to bring out
the physicality of the land through the process
of documenting his walking journeys in the
Midlands and the Southwest of England.
Viewing hiking as a healing process for
mental health, the explorations of the artist
are based on the spiritual connections with
the landscape. By way of replicating and
instigating experience, the accompanying
book is itself conceived of as an explorative
experience as page turns reveal new vistas,
textures and moments akin to the traversing
of land on foot.
