A book of 50 Photos: Book 3: Battlefield Verdun
Many soldiers died here at Verdun. Estimates say over 1 million were considered as casualties. 250,000 of those being outright dead or missing during the course of the war. Going straight from the sports field to a place where your opponent was at your throat with a gun or knife must have been intense. Here on the battlefield there was no retreating from the schoolyard to the warmth of a comforting home. Here you were cast out with the lot. In all types of weather and conditions. In the horrors of battle your life was cheap and your enemy savage.
Remember that each and every one of these soldiers who fell here had hopes, dreams, wants, and desires just like you and me. They read books. Flirted with girls. They had interests and passions. They played sports and games. And hoped for a life long in years and full of experiences.
They were real human beings.
Today the guns are all gone. All the bodies are all removed. The trenches have filled in mostly. Trees and animals again inhabit the forest. Birds sing and you can have a picnic and walk the day here.
This book is the third in a series of books that will cover many of my travels in a photographic way. Using imagery as opposed to words I hope to give a representation of some of my experiences with this unique medium. I hope you enjoy looking at these images in the present as much as I did when I captured them photographically at their exact moment of occurrence in real time and place.
