Description

Whether they're bored office stiffs, housewives or disgruntled war veterans, the armour-clad members of the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA) like to get beaten up the old-fashioned way. From 2003 to 2005, internationally renowned photographer E.F. Kitchen photographed and interviewed the fighters of the SCA on location, using a bespoke, 8x10 bellows camera. What followed was Suburban Knights, a fierce, sepia-toned series of portraits of these 21st-century warriors, lost in time.
