Lest We Forget by Dianne  Ilka

Photographic Prints


13″ × 13″ soft pastel on burgundy canson mi-tients TEX paper

In memory of fallen soldiers everywhere -

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

This has been my translation of the fantastic image The Boots by Plunder for the SoJie 12 exhibition. It has been a fantastic experience!
