The Sladmore Contemporary is delighted to announce the exhibition 'The Zero Hour Panoramas, 100 Years on: Views from the Parapet of the Somme' by Jolyon Fenwick.

About

The first day of the battle of the Somme (1 July 1916) was the costliest in British military history. 

To mark its centenary, writer and photographer, Jolyon Fenwick has created a series of photographic panoramas taken at the exact position (and time of year and day) from which 14 battalions attacked in the first wave at 7.30am BST (ZERO HOUR) that fateful morning. 

Annotated by hand in the manner of the battlefield panoramas of the time with the points of tactical significance as they existed immediately before the battle, they powerfully juxtapose the hellish reality of the nation’s bloodiest battle with the pastoral peace of these ‘forever English’ fields today.
