Shot at Dawn
- 8 November 2014 — 25 January 2015 *on now
Produced over the past two years, Shot at Dawn is a new body of work by the British photographer Chloe Dewe Mathews that focuses on the sites at which British, French and Belgian troops were executed for cowardice and desertion between 1914 and 1918.
The project comprises images of twenty-three locations at which the soldiers were shot or held in the period leading up to their execution, and all were taken as close as possible to the precise time at which the executions occurred.
