Night Vision

Fire in the Eyes

The bust of Georgina Pope which stands at the Valiants Memorial at Confederation Square. She served during the Boer War and the First World War. The bust is one of a group by artists Marlene Hilton Moore and John McEwen. The photo was taken during the pre-dawn light on location and has had the background removed for dramatic effect.

When I was photographing this bust, I had the distinct impression that Ms. Pope was bored with war and had come to think the war to end all wars was overdue to come to an end. As a nurse at field hospitals she likely became tired of mopping up after the heroes had done their work.
