Photography exhibition by Michael St Maur Sheil – The Doughboys 1917-1918
Fields of Battle, Lands of Peace: The Doughboys 1917 – 1918
7 – 23 April, Guildhall Yard, EC2V 5AE
This exhibition, the latest in an acclaimed series of centenary photographic exhibitions created by Michael St Maur Sheil, explores the American soldiers, or ‘Doughboys’, of the First World War.
The exhibition portrays the battlefields which, a century ago, were places of death and horror, and reveals contemporary landscapes of great beauty and tranquillity.
Building on last year’s Somme 100 exhibition in Guildhall Yard, Fields of Battle, Lands of Peace: The Doughboys 1917-1918 marks the entry of the United States into the war in 1917, and traces the journey of the Doughboys as they entered the fray of WWI.
In partnership with City of London, Fields of Battle, Lands of Peace: The Doughboys, National World War I Museum and Memorial, and US Embassy.
