A Statement From the Family of Alyn Wallace

A Statement From the Family of Alyn Wallace

Several days ago, on March 29, the photography world was rocked by the news of Alyn Wallace's sudden passing. The family of Alyn have now released a statement on his Instagram page.

The statement reads as follows:

"Hi all.

As many of you probably have already heard, our miraculous talent Alyn Wallace (Wally) has passed away on 28th of March. There are no words to describe our loss and the pain we’re in. Knowing that he’s had a chance to touch many lives through social media, teach, inspire, and connect with so many souls worldwide puts a consolation smile on all of us.
It is still too early to make any decisions. This unfortunate loss has happened in a foreign country. We believe you’ll understand. It’s hard to comprehend the staggering size of his influence sphere for us boomers, and social media is not exactly a priority at the moment. Any developments regarding his work, equipment, workshops, legacy et cetera will be announced via this account in reasonable time.

We cannot check this account for messages frequently, so if you’d like to contact about his (or your) professional work, suggestions, payments, bookings, ideas or anything else, please contact his mother through paulinewallace1@hotmail.co.uk.

Just to avoid any misunderstanding or misinformation, we would like to clarify: his immune system was weakened due to a pre-existing condition, and a simple gall bladder stone infection spread rapidly, causing multiple organ failure, resulting in his untimely demise.

Pauline - Ian WALLACE"
