In cooperation with the University of Kent, we are exhibiting photographs by amateur photographer and battlefield guide Mark Allen until 15 November. In recent years, he has photographed numerous cemeteries and memorials on his phone. The photos in this exhibition were taken on the former battlefields around Ypres. The exhibition combines the images with poetry and museum objects. The pieces each link to a soldier lying in the cemetery in question. This exhibition shows how the war remains anchored in the landscape to this day and gives us a glimpse of that relationship between landscape and memory.

The exhibition takes place in our remembrance gallery (last part of the museum) and is included in the entrance fee.
