Roger Fenton’s photographic van, 1855

People have a sincere interest in history and have surely visited many museums and sites, that tell the story of a conflict or war.  On these locations, photos and film have their place.
Many of us don’t realize that these were captured by men and women, military or civilian, often with risk of their own live, so future generations could discover and learn from them.
Their legacy, since the capture of the first conflict on film, enables us today to hope for a better future.
This website honours those who stand in the first line with their camera and puts their effort in the spotlight.

“For me, the strength of photography lies in its ability to evoke humanity. If war is an attempt to negate humanity, then photography can be perceived as the opposite of war.” (James Nachtwey, photographer)
