This image is from my Documentary series, "Reenactor Moments". The series is a little glimpse into a strange subculture where people reenact WW2 on their own time, for fun, over many weekends every year. They are unpaid, it's a labor of love for them. The work is quirky, surreal, beautiful, and a little unsettling.
I'm pretty proud of this series. Reenactors often stage mock "battles" for the public. They also reenact everyday living. This image is of a staged, forties-style, movie theater. Inside which, they played movies from that time period... at least for that weekend.
I thought the whole thing had the feel of an Edward Hopper painting. So I asked the young lady to look off somewhere to her left - and I created this image right there, on the spot. With all the vintage vehicles and aircraft reflected in the windows, it looked as if she were selling tickets, not to a movie, but to a strange world that was stuck partially in 1943, and partially in the present day.
All prints are high-quality, archival prints, and signed by myself, for authenticity. This is a limited edition of 40.
The paper is acid-free, smooth, and archival, meaning it will last longer than I will.
Shipping is included in the price. No need to factor it in.
