Contemporary South African artist Paul Emmanuel makes the final preparations to his work "The Lost Men France" in Thiepval, northern France, Saturday, June 28, 2014. The exhibition is the 3rd phase of an ongoing international public art project engaging concepts of memory and collective grief. Located alongside the Thiepval military cemetery, near where thousands of South African servicemen died alongside their allies, it is an intervention in the Somme Circuit of Remembrance. A 600 meter road of silk banners bare the names of French, German, South African and allied servicemen who fell on the Western Front. The names were photographed after being pressed into the artist’s body, without reference to rank, nationality or ethnicity. (AP Photo/Michel Spingler) less
