Urban Trekking

  • is the act of discovering a city mainly on foot and mainly off the beaten path.
  • is the city seen as an artwork in constant evolution and as  a playground to explore.
  • is a choice of books, games, guides and accessories for urban trekking.
  • is a creation of Images Voyages Impressions aka Dominique Lecomte (lecomtedominique.com).

The idea is to show you how to go from known places to unusual ones by following urban paths that can be linked to each others.

You remain independent but you have a guide to help you in your discoveries with a particular focus on the arts, parks and garden, sea and rivers, and architecture.

If you like the concept, you can thank me by sharing the site and/or making it profitable by your various contributions.

Now if you want me to do some urban scouting for you in a city of your choice, it’s possible in return for transportation to and from there, a stipend to be discussed and, depending on the cases, accommodation for about 10 days.

Contact me at ImagesVoyagesImpressions@gmail.com to tell me more about your idea.

In any case, enjoy New York !

Dominique Lecomte

Dominique Lecomte is a printmaker, photographer and writer living in Medford, Massachusetts, a 4 hours train ride to NYC.

He had the idea of Urban Trekking in 2015 when he wanted to visit Nashville and realized it was easy to find walking trails in the wild, but more complicated for cities.

The fact that he had always loved travelling, exploring, writing and taking pictures probably destined him to develop this idea!
