Leading Up to Memorial Day: Part III


Advancing Up the Beach

In my run-up this week toward Memorial Day, the photos continue to illustrate the D-Day Reenactment in Conneaut, OH that is performed each summer.  In this photo, taken with a long telephoto lens, U.S. Army reenactors advance up the beach toward the enemy positions on the bluff.

A series of  photos were put together to publish a book fully documenting this reenactment.  The book can be seen and purchased at:


About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
