“Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red”

As Remembrance Sunday approaches, here’s one of my shots from the Tower of London last week of the amazing “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” by ceramic artist Paul Cummins, with setting by stage designer Tom Piper.

888,246 ceramic poppies, each representing a British fatality during the First World War and marking one hundred years since the first full day of Britain’s involvement.
