World War I in Photos

The Atlantic photography blog 'In Focus' has just launched a series of posts dedicated to photography from World War I. Released in ten parts, part one has just been added to the blog featuring 45 images.

Each Sunday, until June 29th, a new set of photographs will be added to their site, collected from various image libraries and archives from around the world. As the Atlantic photo editor Alan Taylor explains in his introduction ‘On this 100-year anniversary, I've gathered photographs of the Great War from dozens of collections, some digitized for the first time, to try to tell the story of the conflict, those caught up in it, and how much it affected the world.’

It promises to be a fascinating series. The introduction and the first 45 images can be found HERE
