About the Book
'In Memoriam' explores the language of remembrance and commemoration through imagery of local memorials of the Great War 1914 - 1918.
Photographs celebrating the diversity of these unique monuments are juxtaposed with text that challenges our preconceptions and opens a window on the personal lives of the men and those who mourned them.
Generations later it is almost impossible to comprehend the events that touched every household in every street with news of family, friends or neighbours. These poignant memorials remain as a backdrop to our everyday lives.
The stories are hidden there just behind the inscriptions....
