Wallace- from here to there- a journey of discovery….This work in progress is a beginning to my personal journey of discovery following the life of Alfred Russel Wallace.

I am fascinated and amazed by this man whose determination led him to independently discover and identify the theory of evolution through natural selection.

Using old ordnance survey maps and a process of chine colle and mono print  to trace a journey from the rivers and pathways of Hertford to the Malay Archipelago and beyond.

In commemoration of 100 years since his death in 1913……many events will be staged later this year all over the world and specifically ( for praesentia) in Hertford Hertfordshire. More details to follow….
