Pages of the Sea: Danny Boyle's WW1 art project sees 'sand portraits' of fallen soldiers
Remembrance Sunday saw tributes nationwide as Britain – and the world – fell silent to mark the centenary of the end of World War One. One of the most powerful commemorative events took place on Britain’s beaches, where a project curated by filmmaker Danny Boyle saw the faces of fallen soldiers’ drawn into the sand. On beaches from Cornwall to the Shetland Isles, and Pembrokeshire to Donegal, portraits of the fallen were sculpted in the sand, to say thank you for their sacrifice before a collective goodbye as the sea comes in and washes away their images forever.
