The pair of photographs you see below was taken in Moorsele, Belgium (today a part of Wevelgem) in 1917. I at once fell in love with these two shots as the quality of the images and their setting is wonderful. The Prisoners look relaxed and on the second photograph many of them are smiling aswell.
The villa was used as Divisional HQ for the german 34th Infantry Division in August 1917. Thanks to some detective work of my dutch friend Alex Tijhuis, who was able to pinpoint the location of the house, I was able to play around a little and even if its not as professional as the works of some photographic artists out there I am quite proud of it:
If any of my readers live in the area I would be grateful for some more photographs of the house so I can do another version with a better resolution.
