2016 Lest We Forget Poppy stamp - Maximum Card

21 June 2016 - Centenary of World War I, 1916-2016 
For the third year Royal Mail has issued a set of six stamps one of which includes a new depiction of the remembrance poppy.

Giles Revell is a London photographer who is particularly interested in the ways in which photography can capture form and texture. In his Battlefield Poppy, a single poppy stands against a chaotic and barren background. The image has an ethereal quality, suggesting the alienation of life from a world of violence and suffering. To create this delicate and atmospheric photograph, Revell suspended real poppies in a water tank and added coloured dyes to create swirling mist-like patterns. The result, after much painstaking experimentation, is a painterly effect that captures the solitary poppy’s fragility and vulnerability.
