Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Online event: Picturing the Western front / 28 July 2021

Between 1914 and 1918, military, press and amateur photographers produced thousands of pictures. In her new book Picturing the Western Front: Photography, Practices and Experiences in First World War France (Manchester University Press, 2021) Dr Beatriz Pichel argues that photographic practices also shaped combatants and civilians' war experiences. Doing photography (taking pictures, posing for them, exhibiting, cataloguing and looking at them) allowed combatants and civilians to make sense of what they were living through.
