The Greenleaf Gallery is pleased to present Britain at War, a series of photo collages by Nils Schirrmacher. The series is titled after a 1941 exhibition of the same name, the works derived from a single photo that appears in the show’s catalog. This image of a British soldier is one of a group of portraits depicting citizen-soldiers in typological fashion: men and women, old and young, fulfill the roles of sailor, nurse, and pilot, each wearing welcoming and diligent expressions.
