I never claimed that it was a prize winning photo. Just that I liked it.

I like it, too. In fact, each image seems to represent an uncontrived slice of life.

A 17th century re-enactment is "uncontrived"?

How can that be?

I believe the intent was that the actions were uncontrived, i.e. the motions were captured in an as-is state. The costumes and workshops were obviously re-creations but they were fully functional.

They were real artisans who knew their trade (as well as history). The bookbinder is seen rolling leather which he actually uses to cover books, the chef really cooked the foods in laid out in front of him in that kitchen, the lady in is really combing wool to be spun, etc..
