Tie for second. Paul Harris – Confederate Re-enactors
I entered this photo in a photo contest. The subject was “faceless portraits” The moderators are from Australia so they probably never heard of Antietum. Bold was my add. You all are so far from just. Maybe this will attract some others not knowing the work you all do.
“Paul Harris has served up something quite different from most of the images by presenting a portrait of a group rather than an individual. However, there is something about the combination of the sun and smoke, along with all the figures facing away from the camera that I found incredibly poignant. I don’t know the details of that particular battle but I can’t help feeling that they didn’t all survive.”
“I know these are just re-enactors, but it puts to mind soldiers facing battle throughout the ages. You do not see the fear, apprehension or any of the million emotions they are feeling on their faces, but you know it is there. The smoke adds to the effect plus the fact it was taken at dawn. How many would live to see the sun set?”
