"Suburban Knights" photos feature SCA models

Photographs from E.F. Kitchen's new book, Suburban Knights: A Return to the Middle Ages, will be on display at the Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn, New York beginning July 14. Kitchen will also sign copies of the book at Pennsic 39, and her work will be reviewed in the Pennsic Independent.

Suburban Knights is a collection of black and white portraits of SCA members in their armor and garb. Like SCA members, E.F. Kitchen recreates a material element of the past: in her case, archaic photographic processes. The images in Suburban Knights were taken with an 8x10 camera on platinum-coated glass plates.
