All the shoes belonging to one man were mounted on nails in the artist's studio and photographed out of focus with a Polaroid camera. They were later transferred and printed to photogravure by Nils Borsch Jensen Editions, Copenhagen. The title for the work is taken from the song by Irving Berlin (1888 - 1989) , 'When I leave the world behind' (1915).
