The first 4 are among 22 “from two albums entitled ‘Official Australian War Photographs’, produced by the Australian War Records Section, established by the British government in 1917. These photographs are probably the work of official photographers James Francis (Frank) Hurley and George Hubert Wilkins.”
It’s hard to know what to place after these — and they are not the starkest and most disturbing of the set of WWI photos in this stream.
But these will do. They are from a group of 16 called, “Don McCullin Selects.” McCullin, a contemporary British photographer, selected these works from the National Media Museum’s collection to accompany an exhibition of his own photos of archaeological remains around the Mediterranean. Other images feature Pompeii, Rome, Greece, and Lebanon.
There are 20 pictures in Kodak No.1 Circular Snapshots, the first point and shoot camera. Introduced in 1888, it produced 2.5″ diameter circular images.
