1914-1918


90 years ago today marked the end of the First World War 1914-1918.

It was known as 'the war to end all wars'.

It is still sometimes called 'The great war'.

Two of my favourite artists - poet Wilfred Owen and painter Otto Dix produced work influenced by their experiences of this war that is as powerful today as it was back then.

It was one of the first periods in history that I seriously studied.

The saddest thing about this war is that it was not the last.

See more photographs from the time here. Some pictures from today can be found here.
