Description - First World War Photographers by Jane Carmichael
The photographs of the First World War offer an extraordinary range of images, and in this book Jane Carmichael draws on her great expertise and knowledge in this area to look at how those photographs came to be taken. She examines the work of the official, press and amateur photographers, and reproduces over 100 photographs from the archive of the Imperial War Museum, one of Britain's great photographic collections. She focuses on the growing use of the photograph as a medium for the masses and as a historical document, making us aware of the operations of propaganda and journalism during the period and enhancing our appreciation of the photographic documents of the war.
