When you think of a photographer, the first image that comes to your mind is not of a guy in his pyjamas, sitting on a chair at his desk all day long, is it? Truth is, photographers nowadays are spending more time on social media than actually taking pictures.

I was delighted by the impressive act of such a large and diverse cast (29 people of all ages on the stage). “Oh, What a Lovely War” is an epic musical about World War I, and, while the play itself amused me, I must confess that I was moved by the painful truths it revealed about …
