PAUL SHENTON – REGIMENTS OF THE DEAD

A unique and breathtaking viewpoint of the Flanders cemeteries and a spectacular portfolio of photographs. The great military cemeteries found along the Messines
Ridge and around the town of Ieper (Ypres) in Flanders, Belgium, are the last resting place of thousands of soldiers who died during the First World War and are now the
subject of a photographic book by Paul Shenton – Regiments of the Dead.

 

The extraordinary photographs in this book of row upon row of headstones, when viewed from above, resemble soldiers on parade: a regiment of the dead.


This excellent photographic journal displays various cemeteries and memorials around Flanders photographed throughout the year.
