A tribute stitched

I recently completed an assessment for the photography class I’ve been doing at uni. It’s a  narrative in tribute to my Grandmother’s uncle, Horace Hurrell, who was killed in the first day of the Battle of Pozieres, on July 23, 1916. More than 5000 Australian troops from the 10th Battalion died in the first five days of the offensive, and a majority came from the small colony of South Australia.

  1. Hi Jess …. love, love, love your tribute to Uncle Horace. Your photography certainly pays homage to the many lives lost. Jen Clarke

    1. It’s funny, but as I was editing, I started to see the parallels between what I was doing, and the events of 1916, gave me goose bumps. I look forward to wearing this skirt to our school Remembrance Day service.
