Long Dead

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 12 October 2007 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

A group of schoolchildren listening to a sound and light show at Manchester's Imperial War Museum using historic archive photos which tries to explain, as best it can in language they can understand, the terrible consequences of war.

I found the images extremely moving but I was glad that my own children were not with me.

(please excuse the image quality -the photo was taken using a small compact digicam - the room was so dark that I couldn't see the camera controls, neither did I have a tripod)

It's excellent Ian, in fact I don't think it would have looked as incredible as it does if it had a 'better' quality, surely not as authentic as it looks now.

Nicely done without proper control :-)
The grey graininess really helps the shot. Gives it the dirty look of war. At first I thought it would be nice to see the words "Experience of War" more clearly then realized that would take away from the shot. It is better to have it subtle and understated.

This is quite striking - it does give me chills to look at it - good job.
