Fields of Battle, Terres de Paix 14-18
Mike St Maur Sheil
Until 29 September 2014
Fields of Battle-Lands of Peace 14-18 is the result of a collaboration with the late Prof Richard Holmes and documents the battlefields of the First World War as they are today. The exhibition has been created as an outdoor "street gallery" to enable unlimited free to view access to the general public, many of whom would never go to a gallery or museum. 79 Large scale images make up the exhibition, which was first exhibited in Paris on the railings of the Jardin Du Luxembourg. It is currently on show in London in St James's Park adjacent to the Guards Memorial opposite Horse Guards Parade. It will then tour in cities throughout the UK and France over the next four years.
Sheil worked on the project for eight years, and estimates that over that time he spent 450 days photographing World War I battlefields from places as diverse as eastern Africa, Poland, Israel and Turkey. "The only major theatre of the war I didn't cover was Iraq," Sheil said. He's now a qualified battlefield guide, leading tours of sites along the Western Front from Belgium to Switzerland.
Sheil's aim was to show how even now, a century after the start of the war, the scarred landscapes in Flanders, on the Somme and Marne rivers, in the Vosges mountains and elsewhere can still reveal to the careful observer the stories of the millions of men who fought and died.
"There are still traces," Sheil said. "I don't think you'll ever eradicate them."

Jon Wyand is a wine photographer who travels widely but has spent over fifteen years specialising in the region of Burgundy.
For the last fifteen months he has been working every month around the Hill of Corton, an important Grand Cru vineyard site for both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Côte d’Or region of Burgundy in order to record the life and work of the area through four seasons with the intention of publishing a book.
