Bertrand Carrière retraces the footsteps of an unknown World War I photographer introduced to him through a photo album he discovered by chance. In 2005, Carrière and historian Guth Desprez travelled to Europe, with the photo album as their guide, in order to retrace the path of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. By photographing the locations in the soldier's images, Carrière explores the themes of memory and history through the changing landscape. His photographs document the sites which appear in the soldier's album along with others on the Western Front, offering a contemporary view approximately 90 years after the infamous events, which continue to stigmatize these locations to this very day.
