Photography had been around for over half a century but it was not until the First World War that the medium was able comprehensively to document a war. This book, published to accompany an exhibition at the Antwerp Fotomuseum, looks at a broad range of photographs from propaganda images encouraging patriotic support or discrediting the enemy to souvenir portraits of soldiers departing for the front and their own documentary snaps of what they found when they got there.
