about

Iconic photos from the First World War, newly colourized.

See seminal images of Canada's First World War experience in a new light - offered in full colour for the first time - with contributions from Margaret Atwood, Tim, Cook, Charlotte Gray, Paul Gross, Peter Mansbridge, and many others.

Canadians today see the First World War largely through black and white photography. Colourizing these images brings a new focus to our understanding and appreciation of the role Canada played during the First World War. It makes the soldier in the muddy trench, the nurse in the field hospital, and those who waited for them at home come to life. Immediately, their expressions, mannerisms, and feelings are familiar. They become real. They Fought in Colour is a new look at Canada's experience during the Great War. A more accessible look. A more contemporary look.
The Vimy Foundation is a registered Canadian charity, founded in 2006, with the mission to preserve and promote Canada's First World War legacy, best symbolized by the victory at Vimy Ridge in 1917.
