A selection from the series 100 Boots, the epic visual narrative, in 51 photos, invented by Eleanor Antin.

This is the story of 100 identical black boots that find themselves on a wily adventure; breaking laws, scaling the organic countryside, engaging in warfare and ending up in the smoke-and-steel plains of New York City – her own modern day Odysseus.

Everything began from a dream about 100 boots facing the sea. The very next day she got to work making her vision a reality; she traveled to her local Army Navy surplus store and purchased 100 black, empty boots, all of them blank slates ready to be filled with purpose and character.
