‘NO MAN’S LAND’ An exhibition and publication for young people
No Man’s Land: Young People Uncover Women’s Viewpoints of the First World War takes you on a journey through the lives of some amazing female photographers who worked during the First World War. The book is designed by young people for young people.
This groundbreaking publication No Man’s Land was created by New Focus Impressions Gallery’s young people’s project group. The book brings to life the story of the First World War through the eyes of women.
The book features images that have never been published before, including photographs taken by Mary ‘Fluffy’ Porter who joined the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps and pictures from the photo-album made by Sister ‘Josie’ Kane, who travelled to Malta to work for Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service.
