Memories in Place: The Centenary of WW1Posted: September 22, 2014
Join Brisbane documentary photographer, Dr Charles Page, as he shares highlights from his recently released photographic essay.
Griffith University Friends of the Library will host renowned photographer Charles Page in an intimate evening to explore his beautiful photographic essay Memories in Place: the Centenary of WW1.
Charles’ book explores the enduring connections between European WW1 battlefields and the Australian streets, estates and rivers that were named as a result of the patriotic fervour in post war Australia. How do places such as Pozieres or Passchendaele in Australia resonate with those places in France and Belgium one hundred years on? What impact does this have on our understanding of war, peace, nationhood and friendship?
Following the public presentation, Friends of the Library members will be invited to join us for a cocktail reception and the opportunity to network with industry colleagues and guest speaker Dr Charles Page. You will have the option to become a Friends of the Library member and attend this cocktail reception when you register online.
