“I explored the stalls (around 30 in all) and I was genuinely blown away by the craftsmanship of the medals, swords and other items that were on display. I hadn’t expected this at all, I have no interest in anything related to war or the army, especially modern warfare and the tyranny it brings to the people it’s supposedly there to ‘liberate’ and protect.

Yet here I was in awe of the hidden treasures that seemed to be littered everywhere I looked; one of 500 swords issued to Napoleon’s officers, an Indonesian ritual blade, a Masonic sword, tools of death and resurrection for collectors and historians alike. Like a kid in a candy shop, I embraced my inner nerd and became completely absorbed…” — Photographer / Photographic Retoucher, Terry Obiora
