From the series ‘Shot at Dawn’, by Chloe Dewe Mathews.
‘Shot at Dawn’ focuses on the sites at which British, French and Belgian troops were executed for cowardice and desertion between 1914 and 1918. The series comprises twenty-three photographs, each depicting a location at which the soldiers were shot. These executions would usually take place in the early morning, before the battle started. All the photographs were taken as close as possible to the precise time at which the executions occurred.
