Vanishing Points was the exhibition I put on for the centenary, a word spellcheck always reminds me I can’t spell. It was the culmination of about 7 years of wandering about taking photos and writing about it; a sort of landscape punk journey along the Western Front which featured loads of photos, stories about people I sort of bumped into along the way, usually long dead – but that’s the nature of this beast. It also had field finds and ephemera, and went rather better than I expected. To advertise the show a slight variant of this was positioned outside on an A-board, loads of people wanted one, but I just didn’t have the wherewithal (or money) to produce them. Now I do have, sort of, so here they are.

The image is the Sad Angel of Kemmel, it’s one of my favourite spots on the Western Front, sitting just to the south of Ypres, a glacial feature with this beauty on top, various inhabited by nearly every army in the area at one time o another throughout the war. It is very much a resting place for the French, with an Ossuary at the foot of the steep hill, the Angel peers down at them.
