    Nice image….well shot!!

    The styling make sit look original….well executed….it’s not a s easy as people think to make an image look authentic…

    Must say I had a chuckle about the fellow on the left :)

  • the styling I didnt take too seriously as it was all completely impromptue for the soldiers. (I missed my snood however) and a few finishing touches here and there but it is not shopped at all.
    I just loved the timing however, couldnt have been more perfect with that sly little ‘sneek-a-peek’ soldat on my right, lol.
    he just made it a classic i couldnt have directed that even if i had tried, lol

    je ne sais pas what to make of this…but what a lovely re enactment image from a period of great turmoil!! would love to see more from this shoot!!

  • bonjour peter,
    oui je comprend, c’est un melange des emotions
    the other photos are rathe eerie and haunting. the image I am replying with was taken in the Bunker, I have edited it to express the emotions that overwhelmed me while I was inside.
    Shortly after this, I had to be escorted out of the bunker as it was far too overwhelming for me in a most unpleasant way. I couldnt bare it but worse, I couldnt breathe.
    I found an empathy arose from the occassion I am glad for however.

  • oh I just realised, lol sorry, 3am here and i should be in the land of nod by now.
    It was not a shoot as such but rather I gate-crashed an exhibition with a photographer on hand, lol
    but yes, nice idea for a shoot, I may well follow that up -)
