During recent years, I have documented my experiences, which have evolved into a visual diary, a journal, which records and reflects my everyday journeys, noting the detail, often overlooked, in the hustle of our daily routine.
Observing and recording the everyday, the landscape changing constantly, my journeys through each day present new encounters for me to note and capture. My work represents an appreciation and acceptance of the transient nature of our world. With a beauty that lies in imperfection; impermanence; and an appreciation of the simple integrity of natural objects and processes.
‘Caryl’s work focuses on observing and recording the smallest insignificant details that emanate from shadows and refraction of the sunlight. Images of neglected and once abandoned buildings, traces of the layers of history that echo a universal theme of transience, absence and presence. Her investigations have led her into a micro world that requires close inspection and a magnification process in order to record the finest minutiae.’
