Battle of Zonnebeke



Product Description

In 1919 the Library purchased 125 original photographic prints by Frank Hurley recording Australia’s activities in the First World War. In the foreword to the catalogue, official war photographer Hurley stated: ‘I make no claim to pictorial merit; the pictures are records, and except for several of the larger ones are faithful reproductions of the scenes they portray. In order to convey accurate battle impressions, I have made several composite pictures, utilising a number of negatives for the purpose.’ In this composite work, Hurley has created a more dynamic scene by superimposing planes and explosions onto an image of soldiers leaving the trenches.
