The Founders’ Gallery at The Military Museums

OPENING December 2nd, 2016

An exhibition by Leslie Hossack

The latest series of work explored by photographer Leslie Hossack explores the structural remains of the Atlantic Wall – giant bunkers and fortifications, largely hidden by the blowing sands of the D-Day beaches.

It also commemorates individual grave markers of the soldiers killed in 1944 and buried in Canadian, British, American and German cemeteries scattered throughout Normandy, as well as many original documents related to their tragic deaths.
