Study Up For 'Think': The Hidden World Of WWI

Jul 31, 2014

This summer marks the centennial anniversary of the First World War. But recently, unknown underground cities of the trenches were discovered. Today at 1 p.m. on Think, Dallas photographer Jeff Gusky joins Krys Boyd to talk about his collection of photographs that document the unseen artwork, artifacts, and sculptures of WWI.

As a doctor, photographer and explorer, Gusky was introduced to these concealed worlds in the French countryside by landowners and volunteers dedicated to guarding these secrets from vandalism. In the video below, he introduces the Hidden World of WWI. Earlier this summer, selected images were on display at One Arts Plaza in Dallas but the full collection holds 2,000 photos that are featured in the upcoming August issue of National Geographic.

Gusky has also shared his work on social media and you can take a look at some of his photos in the slideshow above.

Listen to Think, Monday through Thursday at noon and again at 9 p.m., on KERA 90.1 FM or via online streaming.
