Before the battle.
German and Allied re-enactor Groups come together to stage mock battles, often replicating momentary skirmishes or the capture of prisoners.
Cobb's work is fascinated by the notion of actors and stage.
His work searches for a timeless depiction, where ordinary people transform themselves in response to a 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 paralell universe where time has stood still.
As a multi award winning artist/illustrator, now photographer Cobb brings his painterly expertise and qualities into his work.
