Caryl Beach uses photography, video, painting and printmaking to capture everyday experiences in the landscape, evolving into a visual diary and reflective journey.  Her video piece made for ‘Herford Layers’ won best video at Eastern Approaches, 2012.

“Through my research of Wallace I have developed a close affinity with his early years spent in Hertford where he too walked possibly the same pathways and rivers edges and visited the sites of Old Mills. His love and fascination of nature are a passion I share. The works I have developed for this project reflect my journeys and observations and, I hope, capture the essence of Wallace’s own passion and enquiring mind.”

I have also produced a short video for Wallace 100 titled ‘the simple act of walking’
