Simon Gregor talks about some of the images he has taken in the research phase of the Remembrance Image Project and the stories behind them, as well as sharing some of the ways in which primary source materials at The National Archives are influencing and shaping his work.

Simon Gregor is a freelance photographer who is photographing First World War sites during the centenary of the conflict. He is using these images as a way of promoting debate and understanding about the war, and about the role of remembrance. There are more details at www.riproject.org and Facebook.com/remembranceimageproject. You can contact him about this project on Twitter at @rememberip.
