Outdoor Exhibition through streets of Amiens 

From 24 April 2017
Parmi Nous
Appearing from the walls of Amiens, these photos of WW1 soldiers highlight how the people of Amiens lived alongside soldiers from 23 different nations during the First World War. Throughout this exhibition, which sends viewers on a trail throughout the city, the faces of young men who came in in the defence of freedom show their great humanity. The portraits seem to emerge from the walls, showing lasting commitment and unity. Through this installtion, we pay tribute to these men and hope to show their descendants how grateful we wil forever be. These magnificent photographs belong to the Imperial War Museum and the Australian War Memorial, and some belong to a private collection that was discovered in a home in Warloy-Baillon and is now conserved by the Franco-Australian Museum at Villers-Brteoneux.
