Chris Harrison is a photographic artist who specialises in producing large-format, documentary-style photographs. His work is included in the collections of the V&A, The Imperial War Museum and the National Media Museum.
Harrison initially photographed war memorials across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The resulting large-scale colour photographs explore issues such as memory and mutual understanding in the aftermath of World Wars and similar conflicts.
Photographs of First World War memorials in Wolverhampton have been commissioned for this exhibition and will be displayed alongside images from Britain and Germany taken in the last 20 years. These images also explore how war memorials are designed, located and presented in different countries.
