Hundreds of walkers create a living piece of art
More than 300 walkers gathered in Cornwall to be part of a unique piece of art by an internationally acclaimed "walking artist".
Hamish Fulton was in Penzance to mark 40 years of creating his highly individual artistic events.
The first walk took place on Penzance's promenade and involved Hamish and more than 100 local collaborators repeatedly walking the width of the promenade, towards and then away from the sea, for 60 minutes.
His second piece took the form of a 'slow walk', with 200 participants divided into two columns that very slowly crossed on the beach between Penzance and Marazion, again taking over an hour.
