Hidden Histories: WWI’s Forgotten Photographs

Hidden Histories: WWI’s Forgotten Photographs

Available on DocPlay
The extraordinary untold story of soldiers’ photography in World War One. The British and German soldiers marched off to war with secret ‘vest pocket’ cameras, determined to record what they thought would be a great adventure. Few were prepared for the horrors they were about to witness- and photograph. This film gives us unprecedented access to rare collections of war photography from both sides of the enemy lines. With war photography soon becoming prohibited on the British side, these covertly-captured images offer an extremely rare window into life on the front lines. Through these intimate photographs – many never before seen in public – we relive the young soldiers’ rapid loss of innocence amidst the long conflict.
