“As fearless a Street Photographer as they come..."

- Spyros Papaspyropoulos (Co-founder of StreetHunters.net)


Forrest Walker is an award winning photographer from Portland, Oregon, USA. His work has been exhibited across multiple continents, bringing a passion for capturing candid interest in living color, along with a fearless obsession for exploration. He has been featured across media publications for his unique documentary projects and given talks at a variety of events and universities in over ten countries.

Followed online as the Major City/100 City Project, Forrest’s current photobook work had him walking 20km/day for five years, as he explored and photographed all aspects of big city life on foot, finding small worlds within each major city, while connecting the whole world through its people and life.


Current Project:

Photographing over 100 major cities around the world
