One photographer's heartbreaking first-person account of WWI's Western Front

Before arriving on the Western Front in August 1917 to document the Third Battle of Ypres, Hurley had been no stranger to photographing under risky conditions. Less than one year earlier, he had returned to civilization after two years stranded on the pack ice of Antarctica with Ernest Shackleton and the crew of the Endurance, a desperate struggle for survival during which he managed to produce a stunning set of images. Hurley went straight to work upon his arrival at the front lines south and east of the ruined West Flanders city of Ypres, risking life and limb in his efforts to document the conflict.

Unseen World War I photos: German Trenches

Walter Koessler during his time as a German officer in the first World War. They're part of a collection of over a thousand photos, stereographs and their negatives that my family has been saving for a century. This is an unusually large and complete collection, and I've taken on the task of preserving it and printing it so other people can experience this history too. These photos have never been published before.

Walter's trenches were very well built, but they still couldn't keep out the snow and the rain. Playing cards next to the garden. Preparing makeshift mortars. The images above were all scanned from their original negatives. Walter took advantage of some unique opportunities to capture WWI on film.

Thank you all so much! If you're in the San Francisco area, please join me in celebrating the completion of funding this evening! See the collection as I scan it on Tumblr More information at WalterKoessler.com I have a hundred page photo album with nearly a thousand photos my great-grandfather Walter Koessler took in World War I. This album is a real treasure. These photos have captivated me for nearly two years, even after paging through them hundreds of times. The images deserve to be seen and appreciated in the context of their whole story. "When Dean first shared this discovery with me, I knew he'd found a rare family history treasure — but I don't think I, or he, or anyone realized at first what a treasure of shared world history this collection would turn out to be.

As seen in: I want you to experience this part of our shared history. L’ECPAD présente ses fonds privés sur la Première Guerre mondiale.
