This exhibit is the result of the reflections of photojournalist Racheal McCaig on the magnificence of a monument commemorating the Battle of Vimy Ridge: an affirmation of a young country that has now reached adulthood and a decisive moment in Canada’s history.
This series of photographs will also be the subject of a special exhibit in Givenchy-enGohelle, France, near Vimy, in April 2017 as part of the commemoration of this battle where so many Canadian soldiers distinguished themselves during the First World War.
