“We must see our men”: Canada’s Official First World War Photographs
This talk will explore the history of Canada’s official First World War photography program from its inception in 1916 to its conclusion in 1919. We will meet each of Canada’s war photographers and examine their individual styles through viewing digitized vintage prints from the war. This investigation of original photographs will allow us to learn more about the materiality and complex lives of printed objects.
