In The Mist is Justin Schmitz’s five-year examination of Airsoft culture and a continuation of his work examining white adolescent and youth culture. This body of photographs depicts Airsoft players in the forest landscape, where they practice. Through their costumes and realistic weaponry, the players precisely recreate the look of a contemporary soldier or militia member. At times, the game takes on realistic proportions, and these young men appear as soldiers. In other instances, their youth and ill-fitting clothing reveal them as children playing a game.

Reception with the Artist:
