The Battle of Chicamauga

The Battle of Chicamauga,
5"x7" tin types, 1990

Aerial Reconstruction, 5"x7"
tin types, 1990

This work was shown at the Photographic Resource Center in Boston. Civil War reenactments are a favorite past-time for many Americans. This reenactment took place outside Chattanooga Tennessee. I rented a plane and photographed the battle with a 35mm camera with a telephoto, normal and wide angle lens from the sky. After printing the pictures I hired a gentleman at the reenactment who was making tin types as souvenirs.
