The Bridge. These faces, these names Are a bridge from then to now All those young men, all those hearts Walking on the unfamiliar brow Of an unfamiliar hill From Stocksbridge to a kill. These soldiers, these boys Are a bridge from now to then All those uniforms walking slowly

Presentation Transcript
slide2

These faces, these names

Are a bridge from then to now

All those young men, all those hearts

Walking on the unfamiliar brow

Of an unfamiliar hill

From Stocksbridge to a kill

slide4

These soldiers, these boys

Are a bridge from now to then

All those uniforms walking slowly

All these unforgotten men

On an unfamiliar hill

From Stocksbridge to a kill

slide6

You can hear Yorkshire

In the way they talk

You can see Stocksbridge

In the way they walk

You can see the men they could have become

As they march behind the beating of history’s drum

slide8

These phantoms, these ghosts

Walk behind us as we go

Through Grenoside in the sun

Through Deepcar in the snow

This is where Remembrance starts:

From Stocksbridge to our hearts.

The Bridge

Poem by Ian McMillan

Photographs by Ian Beesley

The Bridge

Inresponse to Ian McMillan’s poem and the war memorials of Stocksbridge I have tried to connect them all photographically, historically and metaphorically

I decided to use a plate camera, this was the sort of camera used during WW 1, all the exposures were two minutes in duration, to reference the silence on Remembrance day and finally I printed the images and poems on paper that was made in factory in Northern France near to where these men fell. Their new Remembrance created in Stocksbridge on a little bit of France.
