  • Cobb's work is fascinated with the notion of actors and stage.
    Growing up on a diet of war films, Cobb is particularly influenced by cinematic moments frozen in time.

    His work searches for a timeless depiction, where everyday people transform themselves in response to costume and location. Each individual's passion for history goes far beyond the surface layer of a uniform. Attention to detail and obsession transforms each individuals into a parallel universe where time has stood still.

    As part of a long term project, Cobb documents WW2 re-enactors in various locations and scenarios. 
    Here re-enactors are photographed in moments of quiet contemplation amongst the ruins of a re-captured French village.

    Location: Folkstone, Kent UK.
