Though nearly a century has passed since the signing of the Armistice to end World War I, the scale of the unexploded ammunition from the war is still not fully known. Recovering the Past is a photographic documentary project of twenty-five thought-provoking images that explore this legacy of war. The images were produced to coincide with an exhibition in Ypres, Belgium, and this accompanying postcard book contains all the images from the exhibition and describes their origins and backstory. The book also comes with twelve detachable postcards.
 
The photographs here examine the operations of the Belgian Army’s bomb disposal unit and commemorate the Australian Imperial Force’s (AIF) significant contribution to the fighting in Flanders. Through the use of both historic and modern photographs, Recovering the Past visually acknowledges the AIF’s role in the successful outcome of the war in Flanders and offers a new look at the legacy of the war.
