Lecture 1: Photographing War

This lecture highlights the way the arrival of the Kodak pocket camera made the censorship of soldiers’ photography a hopeless task.  Consequently, we have collections of photographs unconstrained by political or market constraints.  These collections of photographs show many facets of the war hidden by officials and rarely sold by photojournalists.  As a result, the global photographic record of the Great War serves as a vast underexploited archive of the face of battle and of the ravages of war.
