At first glance, the images by Bart Michiels, the Belgian photographer who lives and works in New York, seem to depict simple vast landscapes and details of nature. But as soon as we read the titles, our perception of the images change and we instinctively begin to search for traces of the sad history tied to these places. For his series "The Course of History", Michiels sought out Europe's most infamous and bloody battlefields, capturing them as they are today, after decades—or sometimes, centuries. Fields, hills, beaches, where time seems to have cancelled every testament of the past, and with them, a part of our collective memory. Taking advantage of the evocative power of words and images, the photographer invites us to reflect on the sense and consequences of war. Published in an edition of 40 copies, this special limited edition of The Course of History includes a numbered and signed photograph by Michiels, and is issued in a cloth slipcase. The image of the limited print is entitled “Verdun 1916, Le Mort Homme, 2001”. As Sonja Fessel writes in her text “Michiels's photographs are striking for their harmonious composition and aesthetic appearance. In Verdun 1916, Le Mort Homme (2001), for instance, one sees a wide, slightly hilly meadow with high grass beneath a featureless sky. The horizon line lies almost exactly in the middle of the photograph, dividing it into balanced halves.
