About

WarGraves.photography is the website for the upcoming War Graves book series.

In 2012, I decided to use a short two-day break to travel a bit through France. I visited more than a dozen German war cemeteries and it was an overwhelming experience. When I got to the Andilly German War Cemetery which counts 33,085 burials, I decided I’ll become a member of the German War Graves Commission and support their work. Although the cemetery seemed to be in the middle of nowhere, it was in a fantastic state. There even was an elderly couple at someone’s grave and I was wondering how often they drove more than 150 miles to visit the cemetery.

Work on the first War Graves is underway. It will cover 47 war cemeteries in Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. I want to continue with a book about cemeteries in Flanders and hopefully, one day, make it to Eastern Europe or Russia to continue the rather new German war cemeteries.

Feel free to submit your photos of war cemeteries. I will post every photo.
