Shot at Dawn is a new body of work by the British photographer Chloe Dewe Mathews that focuses on the sites at which soldiers in the British, French and Belgian armies were executed for cowardice and desertion during the First World War. The project comprises images of locations at which the soldiers were shot or held in the period leading up to their execution. All are seasonally accurate and were taken as close as possible to the precise time of day at which the executions occurred.

This exhibition is part of a series of New Art at IMMA proudly sponsored by Matheson.
