Red Saunders' Leveller tableau

Photographer Red Saunders recreates 'important but overlooked events in Britain’s struggle for democracy and equality'.  Each work is carefully planned and lit, using costumed volunteers in tableaux vivants.

His latest exhibition features the epic Leveller Women in the English Revolution, 1647, 2011, shot in Yorkshire and involving more than 40 local people dressed in period costume ...

The image is inspired by an account of a meeting of Levellers with supporters of the New Model Army near Malton and was recently featured online at the Guardian website.

Better still, get down to the Impressions Gallery, Bradford, to see this and Red's other works between 28 September and 10 December 2011.
