The contents of my bookcase have become my mountain guide; when deciding what adventure to take on next I turn to the multitude of nature and adventure writers for inspiration. Through delving into their personal encounters they encourage me to visit the landscape and create my own experience. This project follows the words and footsteps of Gwen Moffat, the first women mountain guide. In times of peril my husband will often turn to me and questions ‘What would Gwen do?’ Her strength has carried me through many moments of fear, but equally allowed me to turn to safety when necessary.
This project is a reaction to her book ‘Space Below My Feet’, first published in 1961.
