by Ryan Larkin — 1968
An artist’s observation of the way people walk. Ryan Larkin employs a variety of techniques–line drawing, color wash, etc.–to catch and reproduce the motion of people afoot. The springing gait of youth, the mincing step of the high-heeled female, the doddering amble of the elderly–all are registered with humor and individuality, to the accompaniment of special sound.
