Presented at the emblematic Paris Est station, from which the soldiers departed for the front, this photographic collection is unique. It consists of portraits taken between 1996 and 2007, showing the last survivors of the conflict at 100 years old. After the death of Lazare Ponticelli in 2008, the last of the WWI French soldiers, Didier Pazery worked on the pictures of the old frontline, and on still-life photos of objects belonging to The Great War Museum in Meaux. This series appears in the exhibition, alongside the portraits of the last survivors.
