Exhibitions

'In Flanders Fields Museum', Ypres - 3rd June 2017 - 8th Jan 2018

For a period of six months, 'Recovering The Past' has featured proudly as a component of the centenary commemorations to the 'Third battle of Ypres' or 'Passchendaele'. 

Featuring alongside a display of the work of legendary photographer Frank Hurley, this exhibition has been viewed by visitors from the world over.

Gleaned from discussions with those many visitors, the images of 'Recovering The Past' have created a tangible connection between the past and present.

Among the many who have visited the current exhibition is British Prime Minister Theresa May.
