Jeremy Gorden-Smith: ‘Ypres – ruin to restoration’
02 Apr

The speaker, Jeremy Gorden-Smith, will be giving us a visual tour of post-war Ypres using photographs taken by Corporal Ivan Bawtree, showing the town's reconstruction and influx of battlefield tourists and pilgrims.

Aside from his Army work photographing war graves, Ivan took many photographs of towns devastated by war in France and Flanders.  His photographs of Ypres show the town's reconstruction and the influx of battlefield tourists and pilgrims.

Jeremy has written a book about Ivan 'Photographing the Fallen'  and his talk is based upon a chapter in the book.
