Keep Moving is an artist's book by Hamish Fulton, the British “walking artist.” At the core of Fulton's practice are the experiences he accumulates during his perambulations, which he records in photographs, pictograms and texts. The exploration of self and the encounter with nature become one and the same. Keep Moving resulted from a period of time the artist spent in the Corvara region of the Dolomites in the summer of 2004, during which he went on eight day-long walks and a guided climb, using a small mountain hut as his base. Contributing an essay here is legendary mountaineer Reinhold Messner, with whom Fulton hiked the imagined trail followed by Ötzi the Iceman, whose 5,000-year-old skeleton was recently discovered in the South Tyrol.

One of the most innovative and interesting characters to make a place for himself in the 1960s British art scene, Hamish Fulton developed a personal art form based on walking. Through photographs and texts, colors and words, this artists's book represents the space and time covered by Fulton during a 43-day coast-to-coast walk. On the pavements, roads, and paths of Portugal, Spain, the Basque Region, the Pyrenees, and France, Fulton trod a trail that started at the mouth of the Douro river in Porto and ended at the delta of the river Ebro in Catalonia.

In The Walking Artist, Hamish Fulton documents his peripatetic self and its relationship to the world through which it moves. Fulton--born in London in 1946--initially studied sculpture, but in 1969 he turned to an artistic activity based on walking and graphic record of the walk. The Waling Artist documents various ''walking pieces'' from the early 1970s to the present day. Included are walks across all kinds of terrain--hills, mountains and forests--in regions as diverse as southern England, Peru, Bolivia, northern California, central Australia, Nepal, Japan, Baffin Island in Arctic Canada and France. "Walking is the constant," he declares, "the art medium is the variable."
