Commemorating Peacetime in Dacorum


 The Faces behind our Doves

As part of our WWI centenary exhibitions titled ‘Commemorating Peacetime in Dacorum’ we created an art installation which featured 1,089 origami doves. Each dove represented a soldier who is featured on a war memorial in Dacorum.

These photos put faces to the names of some of the soldiers featured on the war memorials. In some instances these photos provided family members with the first glimpse of their relatives, bringing a personal touch to what can seem a distant topic.
