Lost Sons return to Fareham in World War photo exhibit

A moving collection of photographs of World War soldiers' headstones and memorials will be on show throughout Remembrance Week in Fareham Shopping Centre.

 

The exhibit, titled 'The Lost Sons of Fareham' features the work of local photographer, Innes Marlow. Innes has spent the last year researching local servicemen who left their homes in Fareham during WWI but never returned.

His work took him to France and Belgium where he captured images of graves and of those who gave their lives for our freedom.

 

Innes said "It's difficult to comprehend how many were lost in the conflict, hopefully these photos remembering local men will highlight some of the stories behind the names, and men that those who acted with such bravery 100 years ago will still be remembered 100 years from now".

 

Cllr Seán Woodward, Leader of Fareham Borough Council who commissioned the exhibit, has said: "We were aware of Innes' work and thought it fitting to display the collection as part of the WW1 Centenary events that took place earlier this year. The Shopping Centre has kindly provided a large space so that we are able to re-display the work for Remembrance Week, giving residents another opportunity to see the exhibit and pay their respects".

 

You can visit the exhibition for free in Fareham Shopping Centre, outside Debenhams, between 3 – 12 November, 2014.

 

ENDS
