This series of composite photographs reflects on the Greek Campaign and the Battle of Crete, fought by Anzacs during World War II. Using period photographs overlaying her own images, artist Cheryl Ward has turned back the clock 75 years, returning Anzacs to the Acropolis and German paratroopers to the skies of Crete.
In 2015 photographer Cheryl Ward was contacted by Nick Andriotakis, Secretary of the Joint Committee for the Commemoration of the Battle of Crete and The Greek Campaign. He asked her to create a series of ‘Then & Now’ photographs. The Anzacs are famous for fighting in the First World War. Less well known is the story of the Anzac Corps created to fight in Greece during World War II. Historic photographs show the soldiers between battles visiting the historic sites, like tourists today.
