Echoes of the Great War


Echoes of the Great War

26th April 2017

Exhibition, 12 April 2017 - 20 May 2017
The Photo Space, Ludlow, Shropshire

Peter Cattrell retraces the footsteps of his great uncle William Bagshawe, who served with the Sheffield City Pals Battalion and who died in the Battle of the Somme on 1 July 1916. The haunting photographs tell a vivid story of the absurdity of war and the way nature and man has reclaimed a scarred landscape after 100 years.

The monochrome photographs convey a deep sense of emptiness and bleakness in what was once a battlefield. Today, the wounds of both, people and landscape have healed, are still healing, with this exhibition now being a part of this process. Also on show are photographs of Peter's latest work, a series of still lives of fragments found on the battlefields of Northern France.

The exhibition will run from 12 April 2017 until 20 May 2017. For more information please visit The Photo Space, call 0330 900 0290 or email
