AUTOPIA ONLINE

Paul-Walsh-Autopia

Earlier this year, I visited Milton Keynes with 7 other photographers from the MAP6 collective. Over 72 hours we made the Milton Keynes project, which will be exhibited for a second time in Milton Keynes soon. The work I made was called Autopia, and its now live on my website here.

MK OPENING NIGHT

MKGallery

Collaboration is at the the heart of the MAP6 collective, and we are constantly trying to find ways in which we can further this practice. For the show at the MK Gallery, we decided to edit and exhibit the work as a whole, rather than as individual projects. It was interesting to see how images made by 8 individual photographers worked together, printed and sized differently. We hope to push this further with coming projects, as well as collaborate with other photographers, designers and curators.

We had a brilliant time at the opening night of the Milton Keynes Project. The MK Gallery was packed and everybody seemed fascinated with the work. Thank you to everybody that came to see the work, which will be on show for a further 5 weeks.

THE MK PROJECT

Paul-Walsh-Autopia-1At the end of March, 8 photographers from the MAP6 collective spent the weekend in Milton Keynes, working intensely on a new collaborative project. The work will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the city and will be exhibited at the MK gallery. During my 72 hours there, I made a series of images documenting my walk around the edges of the Milton Keynes road system called the Grid. The series is called Autopia.

WALKING WITH STRANGERS

paul-walsh-walking-with-strangers

In May last year I walked for three months from Le Puy en Velay in Eastern France, and ending 1700km later at Muxia on the West coast of Spain. The past few months since my return, I have been shaping the work into a series that I have now called Walking with Strangers. The pilgrim in the photograph is Tom from England, and I met him walking along an abandoned train line in France. More Images coming soon…
