Walking Men

I love this art project by Stephen Wragg - a photographic record of the painted men who walk under our feet, striding, dancing, or mincing across the tarmac. Better still, he's inviting photo submissions, so keep your eyes peeled for your local walking men!

You might imagine we live in a country with tight design standards and control - but no, self-expression is flourishing in Highways Authorities throughout the land. This is a project, begun in 2004 by Stephen Wragg to document the unique diversity of painted 'walking men' on the streets of the UK. Take a look; the collection of photographs on the pages men and street are arranged by country: England & Scotland,and in alphabetical order by county and metropolitan districts.
