Cobb's work is fascinated with the notion of actors and stage.
His work searches for a timeless depiction, where everyday people transform themselves in response to costume and location. Each individual's passion for history goes far beyond the surface layer of a uniform. Attention to detail and obsession transforms each individuals into a parallel universe where time has stood still.
Adopting the concept of a war correspondent, Cobb documents WW2 re-enactors in various locations and scenarios. Growing up on a diet of war films, Cobb is particularly influenced by cinematic moments frozen in time.
