Photographs Taken at One-Hour Intervals During a Walk from Galveston Island to the West Texas Town of Marfa | by Joshua Edwards

Saturday, August 22nd - October 31st, 2015

"On November 10th, having just returned to the States from a year in Germany, with time on my hands and without a job or anywhere to call home, I set out on foot from my birthplace on Galveston Island, heading to the West Texas town of Marfa, where Lynn Xu and I will build a house and settle down after many years of moving around... [On] December 20th [...] I arrived in Marfa two hours past sunset, forty days after beginning. Throughout the journey I took one photograph each hour. The first image is of the building that now stands in the place of the hospital where I was born, and the last, taken in the morning light on the day after I reached town, is of the property where Lynn and I will live: 404 West Galveston Street in Marfa."
- Joshua Edwards, from the Introduction to the book "Photographs Taken at One-Hour Intervals During a Walk From Galveston Island to the West Texas Town of Marfa" 2014
