Wounded: Memorable photos for Remembrance Day.

As we enter Remembrance weekend, our thoughts turn to commemorating the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives during the two world wars. We forget that war continues unabated in our world today and that the wounded are still forgotten. An embarrassment even. Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams and talented photographer has produced a powerful series of images that remind us that war leaves scars that are more than skin deep. War wounds more than a soldier – it wounds whole societies for generations. Something we should all strive to remember this weekend – ‘War is a cowardly escape from the problems of peace.’ Thomas Mann.
