Every summer thousands of people from all over the world gather in a Kentish field and leave the present firmly behind. They step out of their routine, daily lives and transform themselves into historical characters from the first and second world wars in a collective fantasy that is played out on a massive scale. Jim Naughten’s portraits of these re-enactors are shot formally, in three-quarter profile with a treatment that heightens the sense of artifice and anachronism. It is hard to imagine them outside this fictitious battle zone. Beautifully bound and printed, this volume records a world apart from both the past and present.
