Once an adman – always an adman. I recently shot a series of images to commemorate my Grandfather’s military service in the British Army during WW1. He was an Irishman, and like over 200,000 of his fellow countrymen, history has forgotten their service and sacrifice. The reasons are complex and controversial. Even today, 100 years after the start of WW1, the subject is emotive and divisive in Ireland. These print ads are an attempt to rectify a wrong. Time to remember.

Excellent. Worth a visit.  Link: Iconic Portrait Photos Throughout History Recreated with John Malkovich as the Subject.

Very pleased to have headed up this week’s selection of ‘Painterly Mobile Art Monday No. 22’ on Geri Centonze’s site with my Battle of Waterloo image. Nice selection of work and shows how versatile and creative mobile photographers can be with a variety of textural photo apps.

Every year, just down the road from where I live in Belgium, grown men and women dress up and play soldiers in a field outside the town of Waterloo. The Battle of Waterloo reenactment is an annual event that attracts thousands of participants and observers from France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Great Britain, Germany, Poland and Russia. It’s quite a sight. A photographer’s paradise in fact. Click. Camera: iPhone. Post: Photos apps.
