Photographs taken by women on the front during the Great War: this exhibition, No Man’s Land, organized by Pippa Oldfield and on show at the Impressions Gallery in Bradford, really is a new look at the pointless slaughter. The pictures, many of which have never been seen before, were taken by very different women; from Olive Edis, the first Englishwoman to be an official war photographer, to the nurses Mairi Chisholm and Florence Farmborough. The exhibition demonstrates how, overcoming stereotypes and the imaginary, there is another way of denouncing war. It is by capturing from a different perspective the eyes, poses and suffering of those involved in the conflict, attempting in some way to heal them.
