Michael Falco is an award-winning photojournalist and a regular contributor to The New York Times and National Geographic. His panoramic work documenting the Fresh Kills Landfill is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. In 2011, Michael Falco set out to document the American Civil War’s 150th anniversary. He decided to travel to more than 20 major historical battle reenactments. Instead of shooting these historic re-creations using a modern hi tech digital camera, Falco utilized a far more analogue medium: a pinhole camera. Shot from an on-the-ground perspective, he gives you a personal immersive experience that magically captures these battlefields in a way that feels more gritty and fully realized than anything before it. The smoke-filled battle reenactments become dreamlike, with ghostly figures blurred in a haze of canon smoke, like some distant memory. The color of the images seem to imbue the images with emotion, pulling you deeper into the picture, as though you are there yourself gazing through the haze on the battlefield.
