    It is the same process as location finding and staging a film set , but for a single image.
    It is as valid as those people who create dioramas in a studio to create their images, but on a grand scale.

    What is perhaps more surprising is that it viable from a financial aspect.

    It is a large scale version of Margaret Cameron's approach to photography. Where she dressed and staged her sitters as characters from the past.

    It has a long tradition in photography from its earliest days.

    I wondered about that and how much of the 'he trucks in loads of stuff' is genuinely true, or, whether he's independantly wealthy and this is just a fun passtime he funds.

    JMC did dress a lot of characters but she was a great portraitist with the advantage of having many of the most famous people of the day as friends. I went to Dimbola several years ago and absolutely loved many of the displays. I think believe I saw an exhibition in london 10 years ago or so.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Everything any of us says about an image says as much about ourselves as it does about the image. More in many cases. It is always up to the reader to decide whether we are describing our own critical capabilities more than the image.
