The partnership between Louisville and Leeds came about mainly due to the links between the Royal Armouries museum in Leeds and a gallery housing the USA outpost of the museum in the Frazier History Museum.
Because of this I couldn’t help but pop in and take up the offer of a ‘behind the scenes’ tour.
I enjoyed meeting everyone here and finding out more about what the museum gets up to – from props to planning and marketing to rehearsing plays.
In addition to the portraits I was especially taken by the dioramas found throughout the museum – which I captured and turned into a photographic ‘zine’ – Dioramic.
If you prefer, you can see this set of images over on Flickr.com.
A big thanks to everyone who made me feel welcome on my visit; and to Zoe for showing me around.
