Assignment: Built to Walk

Our most recent assignment Built to Walk asks our members to submit images of the human movement. Writer Paul Salopek and National Geographic photographer John Stanmeyer are leading this assignmnet looking to answer the question of why we as people continue to move?

Writer Paul Salopek is on a journey. He is setting out to recreate the voyage of dicovery our ancestors made when first wandering out of the prehistoric African Eden and migrated across the Middle East and Asia, before crossing into North America. His project, called the “Out of Eden Walk,” is an online experience where Paul is posting his thoughts, images and encounters with people he meets on his trail. Along with National Geographic photographer John Stanmeyer , who is visually documenting the Out of Eden Walk project, they are curating an assignment called Built to Walk , which asks our Your Shot community to submit images of human migration and movement.

Following the lead of the Out of Eden Walk project, we’re looking for images that answer the question: Why do people move? What makes us seek out new horizons, and why can’t we just sit still?

You don’t have to go far to capture these kinds of images. They can be found in cities or on farms, in small towns or migrant camps. Look for a way to capture the art of human movement in a creative and artful way. In addition, show us the narrative of life around your. Every photograph does not have to be of someone walking.

If you’re in need of inspiration both Paul and John have uploaded images to their Your Shot profiles to help you better understand what they may be looking for content wise with this assignment.

With the help of our Your Shot members, Salopek and Stanmeyer hope to explore a fundamental quality of being human: restlessness.

Submit your photos to this assignment by February 15th!
