Our previous blog post featured the work of Dean O’Gorman, a New Zealand actor and photographer, whose photographic exhibition Passchendaele — The Elusive Familiarity of War is currently at The Great War Exhibition.
Dean feels very passionately about the First World War and went to great lengths to add a new photo to the current exhibition — a photo that would demonstrate the contribution of women to the First World War, and in particular at Ypres near Passchendaele.
Dean went to great lengths to create his new photo, which depicts women nursing wounded soldiers. He dug up an Auckland farm to recreate the conditions that our troops may have experienced. The media covered Dean’s photo shoot in the New Zealand Herald online and also in the Cook Strait News, below.
