Modern Times

'Walking is good for untangling a tangled heart.'

Inspired by the final shot of Modern Times Charles Chaplin in which the gamine girl and the tramp walk away from the camera.

I have met with but one or two persons in the course
of my life who understood the art of Walking, that is,
of taking walks, -- who had a genius, so to speak, for
sauntering, which word is beautifully derived "from
idle people who roved about the country, in the Middle
Ages, and asked for charity, under pretense of going a la
Sainte Terre," to the Holy Land.'
Thoreau's Walden

Commission by Guy Mannes Abbott and Celine Condorelli for Walking 1 to 10
Stills: John Miles
Salon 3, Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, London.
