    Shot at Dawn

    How a contemporary photographer is addressing one of the conflict's most sensitive topics. To commemorate the centennial of the First World War, the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art has commissioned the young British photographer Chloe Dewe Mathews to produce a new body of work, the outcomes of which will be the subject of a major exhibition and accompanying publication.
