Reconstructed

at 1280 × 960 in ‘Reconstructed’ project

This image examines how the museum removes things from context to create a subjective view of history, using the battle reconstruction (or re-enactment) as inspiration. Incorporating re-enactment photographs taken by the Shire oak photography collective alongside a gallery attendant who is a member of the collective, the work explores the nature of the photographic and performative reconstruction in relation to the historical truth of the museum.
