Thanks to the New Colombo Plan grant, Linsey Walker was awarded the opportunity to experience a cultural trip to Japan as part of his Bachelor of Creative Arts degree.
During the trip, he experienced traditional and modern Japanese culture in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. This international opportunity greatly influenced his research for his Honours degree where he is researching ‘Aesthetic Wandering and The Nearly Never Nearby’ and allowed him to produce a body of work about wandering. It also resulted in the publication of the first issue of Walker’s zine ‘Ryoko’, a zine about wandering and travel.
'After this experience, I plan to return to Japan for a future photographic art project documenting the everyday life of Hokkaido in the Winter.'
Linsey is now completing his Honours exegesis at USQ and intends to start his postgraduate studies in the near future.
