Since the 1960s Long has based his art on the action of walking in the natural landscape. He later extended this practice to creating sculptures using materials found in these landscapes, whether at the site itself or in the gallery. A Line in the Himalayas is one of several works that resulted from a walk in the Nepalese Himalayas that Long made in 1975. The photograph records a line of white stones arranged by the artist, which stretch towards the mountain peaks in the distance.
