My photography usually consists of realistic, historically accurate reenactments of military units in the 20th century, specifically focusing on female soldiers. Currently I am concentrating on the three women that fought in the Serbian Volunteer Guard ("Arkan's Tigers"), a paramilitary unit that fought in Croatia and Bosnia from 1991-1995, during the Yugoslavian Civil War. Most people have no idea that three females fought in combat for the Tigers, and that one of them was an officer (her name was "Lena", which is her nom de guerre). The other two were Ljiljana and Tanja, and not much is known about them. I try to honor their memory with my photos. Another favorite subject is the women that were in the Iraqi Army, under Saddam's presidency. Once again, most people have no idea that women were medics, security personnel, communications specialists, and general staff service members from 1980 to around 1992. Their uniforms were very attractive, and their service to Iraq needs to be remembered.
I personally want to keep showing these attractive girls in the very nice female uniforms of their respective time periods and countries, as well as eventually explore my interest in women in science fiction, fantasy, and other historical periods. I want to share my photos with the world, not just as an artistic product, but as living reenactments of history. I hope to meet other photographers, possibly some new models, and just generally interact with members that enjoy this rich and rare opportunity to share in knowledge of the past. Please contact me through the "Messages" section.
