If you missed our recent exhibition No Man's Land: Women's Photography and the First World War at Impressions, see the exhibition on tour at Bristol Cathedral, The Turnpike, Leigh and Bishop Auckland Town Hall in 2018 and 2019.

No Man’s Land
offers rarely-seen female perspectives on the First World War, featuring images taken by women who worked as nurses, ambulance drivers, and official photographers, as well as contemporary artists directly inspired by the conflict. Commemorating the First World War Centenary, No Man’s Land features photographs by three women of the epoch, alongside three women making work a century later.

No Man’s Land is a national touring exhibition curated by Dr. Pippa Oldfield and co-produced by Impressions Gallery, Bristol Cathedral, The Turnpike, and Bishop Auckland Town Hall.

The exhibition is supported by Arts Council England Strategic Touring, Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, and Peter E. Palmquist Memorial Fund for Historical Photographic Research.

Historical images are kindly provided by Imperial War Museums; National Library of Scotland; Special Collections, University of Leeds; and Cromer Museum (Norfolk Museums Service). No Man’s Land is a member of the First World War Centenary Partnership led by IWM (Imperial War Museums).

Soldier by Alison Baskerville is commissioned by Impressions Gallery. Shot at Dawn by Chloe Dewe Mathews is commissioned by the Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford as part of 14–18 NOW, WW1 Centenary Art Commissions.
