Hear a talk by historian Jay Winter, exploring the ‘Kodak revolution’ of World War I and the extensive trail of unofficial photography that ensued.

This lecture by Jay Winter explores the way the arrival of the Kodak pocket camera made the censorship of war an impossible task.

Throughout the war, soldiers photographed their experiences. They captured moments of boredom, combat, or reflection. This left an important collection of photographs that are now resurfacing from family photo albums to the public domain.

Jay Winter received his PhD and DLitt degrees from the University of Cambridge and is currently the Charles J. Stille Professor of History at Yale University. He specialises in the First World War and researches its impact on the 20th century.
