Cap­tur­ing The War


From pro­pa­ganda to re­con­nais­sance to jour­nal­ism to doc­u­men­ta­tion, pho­tog­ra­phy was put to many uses in the First World War, and de­vel­oped quickly there­after. Through orig­i­nal panorama and aerial photographs and pic­ture post­cards taken by both of­fi­cial war pho­tog­ra­phers and am­a­teurs, cou­pled with the mu­seum’s lo­ca­tion as a mil­i­tary hos­pi­tal dur­ing World War I, the Mu­seum of Pho­tog­ra­phy (p. 41) presents the Pho­tog­ra­phy in World War I ex­hi­bi­tion this month, giv­ing view­ers in­sight into just how pho­tog­ra­phy was used and mod­ern­ized dur­ing the war.
