Photo Not Available

Besides all of its obvious firsts, World War One also saw the rise of war photojournalism. Of course, the presence of cameras on the battlefield had gone back to the American Civil War, but the cameras of these eras were too cumbersome, too delicate, and too slow to be operated in the middle of an actual conflict. Because of these limitations, most of the photos from the war focused on the aftermath of the battles; corpses posed amongst debris in an attempt to recreate the violence that had just occurred.
