Missing of The Somme with Middleport Poppies
This composite is two blended photography. One from the excellent display of ceramic poppies when they were exhibited at Middleport Pottery and the other is a photograph of a collage of soldiers who went missing during the battle of The Somme in WW1 taken at Thiepval Museum. I wanted to express the reality behind the poppies and I found it very poignant to think that all these young soldiers are someone's son, husband, fathers and lovers. Best viewed in full screen whilst taking a few moments to remember them.
