Art, Music, and Photography of WWI & WWII
Transcript of Art, Music, and Photography of WWI & WWII
Most of the music during WW1 was about war.
Music about the war in this period was disturbing, unstructured, and frightening.
The popular music of the time period was not about war.
During this time period the radio was very important to society.
Music was used as a type of propaganda. Most of the photos taken during WW1 were taken by The Army Signal Corps.
Photographs were mainly taken for military and educational usage.
When the war became very violent the government didn't want the public seeing this side of the war.
They made a law for photographers stating that if they took a picture without permission they would be arrested. The well known photo of the six men raising the flag on Iwo Jima was taken during WW2

Every activity of war was photographed.
Most photographs were taken in black and white.
Very few photographs were taken in color. Art, Music, and Photography

Ernie Mayne Music was an escape of the world
Some songs were about war Music was one way the people could escape the idea of war. Also if people wanted to listen to songs that reminded them of patriotism they also had that opprotunity. Peggy Lee
Johnny Mercer Music became theatrical and a part of peoples every day life during this time period.
