Magdalena Haras

I love the concept of this book by Magdalena Haras who has taken excerpts from 'The long Walk' by Slawomir Rawicz and made them into a book that is also a pair of shoes. Magdalena's interpretation alludes to secrecy with the information hidden within the soles, the shoes are the perfect vehicle for this story.
'Walking a mile in someone else's shoes' or looking at things from the point of view of others is a strong belief of mine and this illustrates it poetically and perfectly. 


  1. Brilliant! Love the concept of a journey recorded as a shoe-book. Grounded, secretive, the physicality of the body walking becoming thoughts held in one's shoe!
