Battlefields of Honor: American Civil War Reenactors | Mark Elson Pictures
Mark Elson Pictures
What most people overlook is what I capture in my photography. A fleeting moment becomes a small-scale drama, a vignette that takes on deeper meaning as that moment is isolated and elevated. Suddenly the discounted scene becomes a story that evokes curiosity and wonder. With digital, analog or the 19th centuary wet plate photography process, I use the camera to strip away the veneer to see the beauty in the everyday. I tell stories of misfits, dreamers, romantics, and the forgotten.
