Photography in the First World War

Share:

More than almost any other war, the first world war gave rise to a rapid acceleration of technological development. Photography, too, was affected by this push towards modernisation, and became an integral part of warfare in a multitude of ways.

The exhibition is an exemplary representation of the use of photography in times of war, in the form of photographs from the museum's own holdings as well as loans from other collections.

The museum's archives contain an extensive array of images both by official war photographers and amateurs, ranging from panoramas and aerial views to postcards and photographically illustrated war diaries. It is the first time they are shown to a wider public in a thesis-orientated presentation. The aim is not a photographic illustration of the first world war, but a history of war-time photography.
