Gallipoli: Then and Now


In the familiar ‘Then and Now’ style, Steve Newman tackles the 1915 military disaster on the Gallipoli peninsula that cost the lives of so many allied soldiers.

Prior to World War I, war photography belonged to the realm of professional photographers. At the start of WWI, many European soldiers were equipped with personal cameras – the most common type was the Vest Pocket Kodak that was marketed to families of soldiers as a good ‘parting gift’. Allied officials eager to control the ‘official view of war’, banned personal photography and instead established sanctioned photographic units. So it’s a mix of official and ‘personal’ images that fill this tome, along with modern counterparts for the ‘Now’ comparison images. It would be fair to say that there are many more ‘Then’ images than ‘Now’ ones.
