WWII Veterans Photographic Portrait Exhibition

Beautifully photographed WWII veteran’s portraits will be on show in the “3945 Portraits Project” exhibition at the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum.

Photographer Glyn Dewis designed the 3945 Portraits Project to honour and remember surviving WWII Veterans by photographing as many of them as is possible, to provide both the veterans and their families with classic, timeless portraits they will treasure and can remain in their families for generations to come.

Glyn Dewis, Photographer of the 3945 Portraits Project, comments

“The 3945 Project has been a joy to create. I have met some truly amazing WWII veterans and heard many stories, told with such humility, describing great acts of bravery. I hope that the pictures will be loved by the family of the veterans and perhaps educate current and future generations about the events of WWII and of those who served, survived and were lost, so that their memories and sacrifices are never forgotten and such events may never happen again.”

The exhibition opens on Sunday 20th October 2019 at the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum, Woodstock, Oxfordshire and runs until 5 January 2020.

About the 3945 Portraits Project

The purpose of the 3945 Portraits Project is twofold:

​To honour and remember surviving WWII Veterans by photographing as many of them as is possible in order to provide both them and their families with classic, timeless portraits they treasure and can remain in their families for generations to come.

To sensitively educate the current and future younger generations about the events of World War 2 and of those who served, survived and were lost, so that their memories and sacrifices are never forgotten, and such events may never happen again.

Glyn Dewis is a Photographer and bestselling author of The Photoshop Workbook, Photograph Like a Thief and The Photoshop Tool Box

 About the Taxi Charity

The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans was formed in Fulham in 1948, to work for the benefit, comfort and enjoyment of military veterans and arranges many trips every year for veterans from all conflicts.

The charity offers international trips to Holland, Belgium and France, UK day trips to concerts or museums, transport to attend fundraising events, as well as special days out to catch up with friends and comrades.

To fund and facilitate these outings, the charity is wholly reliant on generous donations from members of the public, businesses and trusts and the amazing group of London licensed taxi drivers who offer their time and vehicles free.
