This project called “reconstruction” started 2 years ago, involving reenactors of my region, I started it as a documentary project, aiming to show the soldiers who fought in my area the north of France.
The more I was shooting, the more I felt that the people in front of the camera were not only XXI th century humans wearing clothes of this period, each one of them had a story to tell, special reasons to reenact, this became particularly obvious when we had to write short captions .
In fact many of them delivered me a first person story unveiling an unexpected facet of the project with a story behind each picture. Lenticular photography is used to bring a bit of the reality of those men and to offer viewers a unique visual experience that is missed on this 2D presentation.
