The Changing of the Guard


The Changing of the Guard


The Changing of the Guard: Graphic Incidents of the Two World Wars provides examples of photojournalism created by “official and other photographers” and collected into a commemorative album published in Australia. Some of the action shots included in the album point toward advances in photographic technology in the twentieth century, and are reminiscent of photojournalist Robert Capa's well-known photographs from World War II. 

Compare these examples of war photography, taken with twentieth-century technologies like gelatin film and Leica cameras, and reproduced as halftones, with nineteenth-century war photography, such as the examples contained within South African War Through the Stereoscope.
