Antoine Schneck: unknown soldiers

The photographer Antoine Schneck is honoured in this exhibition in which he pays tribute to 18 unknown soldiers during the Great War.

From Thursday 27 November 2014 to Wednesday 31 January 2018

Arc de triomphe

The Great War – this is the theme unveiled by the photographer Antoine Schneck, from Suresnes, in the exhibition “Antoine Schneck, Unknown Soldiers”, hosted in the Palmes Hall of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Here the photographer presents snapshots which reveal a selection of uniforms on a black background, worn by soldiers of some of the countries involved in the First World War. They try to embody the different phases of the conflict, along with the weapons and units involved. Nine nationalities are represented: French soldiers alongside combattants of Germany, Belgium, Britain, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and America.

For the public, this exhibition, organised by the National Monuments Centre in partnership with the Army Museum, provides a chance to discover uniforms which are devoid of all artifices of presentation, in snapshots which will leave one’s points of view multiplied.
