One Photo, So Many Faces

A commemorative photograph from April 1919 presents the 101 US Artillery Regiment – farewell picture just before demobilization. Probably each of the soldiers recived a copy to show it proudly after coming back home. Although it represents more than 700 faces each siluete is sharp, each button-sized portrait is recognizable, though uniforms and forage caps unify. Still all remain anonymous.

Having this photo on my wall for past twenty years I try deeper and deeper recognise the personality and individuality of each face….
