Work presents five drawings that depict five different landscapes (mountain, river, lake, swamp and land) where some of the battles from the WW1 took place, each in one of the year of the war. Photographs of landscape that are used to create a drawing are from Italy and mountain Grappa, lake Tanganyika in Africa, mountain Cer in Serbia, river Somme in France and village Passchendaele in Belgium. Using the elevation of the places drawings are put to a certain height, in that way they can create a new landscape.
