Pictures of World War I

Each Worth 1000 Words…

The Battle of Zonnebeeke

This is another Frank Hurley composite.  That is to say this picture is actually two or more picture negatives combined.  This scene as it appears never occurred or at least not all at once.  The plane, soldiers, and explosions are likely separate pictures all layered atop one another to create this image.  Hurley is a controversial figure in presenting his photographs as an artistic interpretation through the combined negatives.  Note that only a small handful of his photographs are combined negatives.
