World War I Photography Exhibition

Occurs every week on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday

Brisbane audiences are fortunate to have the opportunity to view photographs taken directly from the battlefields of Gallipoli.

From 19 April to 14 May Aspire Gallery in Paddington will host a World War l photographic exhibition featuring the photos taken by Australian soldier Harold Emanuel Collins.

While the images captured by many of today’s young 20+ year olds focus on selfies, food, fashion or sports, Collins’ images serve as a sobering reminder of life on the battlefield for many his vintage.

His extraordinary wartime experience included participation in the Gallipoli landings on
25 April 1915, where he served until evacuation in December 1915. Collins served at the front line during most of this period.

In contrast to the official war photography of this period, Collins’s grainy and unauthorised images paint a personal picture of warfare – capturing the adventurer’s delight in his foreign surroundings, the infrastructure of war and everyday life on the battlefield.
