In Memoriam

Memorials of the Great War

In Memoriam explores the language of remembrance through imagery of local memorials of the Great War 1914-18.  Photographs celebrating the diversity of these unique monuments are shown juxtaposed with texts which open a window on the personal lives of the men and those who mourned them.

Generations later it is impossible for us to comprehend the events that touched every household in every street, but their stories are hidden there just behind the inscriptions.
