The following photos are part of a 2 week long assignment to photograph and capture one of Canada's largest historic site, Louisbourg Fortress. Every day during the summer season, dozens of interpreters don uniforms and assume their role on what would be a typical "day in the life" of the French fortress under siege in 1758 by the British. Hundreds of tourists walk through the cobbled stones of the site and learn what life was in the colony, assist at military parades and can walk through the many restored buildings. The interpreters are well trained, from soldiers to the village drunks, and interact with the visitors, explaining what life was like at the end of the 18th Century in the New World.
