Description

Gurney’s book is a compilation of World War 1 documentary photographs juxtaposed with reproduced pages from her grandfather’s journal, (he was a soldier at the time). The photographs of gruesome battle have been amended by the artist to reveal their structural composition. In addition, the bandages of the victims ahve been repaired with the use of silkscreen overlays.
