As the exclusive representative of the photographs of Michael St Maur Sheil, Mary Evans Picture Library is delighted to be associated with the exhibition of Mike's photographs of World War One battle fields, previously exhibited in St. James Park and currently on show outside the Guildhall in London in the Fields of Battle, Lands of Peace Somme 100 exhibition.
A century on from the outbreak of hostilities, in a series of stunning photographs, Mike has documented the power of nature and time to effect a transformation from the gruesome past and create landscapes whose very shape preserves the memories of The Great War in vistas of peace and tranquility.
To accompany the exhibitions and commemorate the centenary, more than 150 of Michael St. Maur Sheil's images have been published in a stunning new book. If you live in the UK and are unable to attend, or if you would like a souvenir of
the exhibition which runs until 3rd July 2016, you can buy a copy of the beautiful, 264 page, full colour hardback book for £55.00 + £15.00 p&p by filling in the form below and paying securely online. We are sorry, but if you live outside the UK it is not currently possible to supply the book.
