English Civil War

The 1640s and the English Civil War has always been my favourite period, so the heart of my historical re-enactment project is on the Sealed Knot, Europe’s largest re-enactment group. While I do shoot in colour, I didn’t see paintings from the period until I moved to London, and I grew up seeing the likes of Van Dyck and contemporary lithographs reproduced in books in B&W. So to my eyes the 17th century looks right in B&W.
