A hundred years on, the effects of World War One continue to be felt in large parts of the world. World War One: A Contemporary Conversation looks at the period 1914 to 1918 and also considers the urgent subject of war today. This is told through diaries, letters, and other documents drawn from the collections of the Alexander Turnbull Library and Archives New Zealand. With the content of this exhibition focused largely on photography and the written word the relationship between image and text became central to the design. Bespoke display cases were developed to house the delicate documents, diaries and original photographs.
