Artist's Description

These are a series of images that reflect some of the emotions and interactions of ANZAC day marches I’ve experienced in Melbourne. Some of the images are from 2013 and reflect digital technology; the others are circa 2001, captured on Kodak T400CN black and white film, which unfortunately doesn’t have EXIF data.

ANZAC day is probably the most significant national occasion and day of remembrance. On the 25th of April each year, Australians stop to consider war and remember people involved in or with current or ex-servicemen and women.

April 25 is significant because on this day in 1915 Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed on Gallipoli. The military campaign lasted eight months before allied forces were evacuated, but not before more than 8,000 lives had been lost.

ANZAC Day is a day to remember the sacrifice of those that died in the war in a service held at dawn, often followed by a march, combining patriotism, remembrance and reflection.
