Matt Green has set himself a daunting goal: he wants to walk all the streets, bridges, roads and pathways of New York. The World Before Your Feet follows him on his systematic journey of more than 12,000 kilometres. On the way he takes photographs and accumulates interesting facts and anecdotes about the neighbourhoods he passes through. With this simple starting point, Green manages to gain unique insight into the extraordinary diversity of New York and its residents. The simple act of walking turns out to offer a totally different way of looking at the urban surroundings.
