TOWER OF LONDON / Poppies

Short Documentary

Over 5 million people travelled from across the country and around the world to see the installation of 888,246 ceramic poppies at the Tower of London. The commemorative artwork, by artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper, caught the nation’s imagination and acted as a place of pilgrimage for millions of people to reflect on the First World War, 100 years since its outbreak in 1914.   

Shot over the course of a year from January 2014 to December 2014.
