Brett Killingdon

Professional photographer Brett Killington is working on an international 4-year project documenting battlefields in Belgium and France related to World War One.

With the 100th anniversary of WW1 approaching the aim is to reflect the landscapes that the soldiers experienced and give a sense of what the soldier saw from his shell hole. If funding allows, then Brett would also like to document the beaches and cliff faces of Gallipoli.

In support of the project Ilford Photo have supplied 19 Harman TiTAN 4x5 Pinhole Cameras, and film. During the Great War nineteen employees of Ilford Ltd went to fight for their country and died during their military service. This project is particularly poignant for Harman staff given a plaque commemorating their loss is still on display today at the factory. The project involves exposing 5”x4” sheets of black and white film in cameras over a 24 hour exposure.

Brett was born in New Zealand but now resides in the UK. He has been a professional photographer for over twenty years and has exhibited internationally. He has a MA in Photographic Studies from Westminster University, London. He presently splits his time between lecturing at Swindon College and his WW1 projects underground, and on the battlefields of France and Belgium.

For more details and to follow the progress of this project visit the 64 stops website. Brett is the founder of the company 64stops.
