This past week, I went to Normandy for the 73rd D-Day anniversary commemorations. I traveled with Liberation Route Europe, a foundation whose mission is to monitor and develop the Allies’ liberation route and to promote a transnational understanding of the liberation of Europe.
I have several history projects over the next month from this trip, but I want to share some of the photographs from my journey right away. I was prepared to go in as a history-lover, but I was blown away by the emotion of the anniversary events and the beauty of the Normandy region.
Here are some of my favorite shots of Normandy and the D-Day anniversary. If you’d like to see more photos, there’s a sign up to download an eBook of my photographs from the trip. Seeing how many of you all reached out to me privately about this event, I have a feeling that you all share my enthusiasm for commemorating World War II history, and I want to give you more photographs from the trip then I would normally have room for on Instagram or a blog post. I hope you enjoy!

If you’d like to see more photographs from the trip, I put together a 50+ page eBook of my photographs taken all over Normandy.
