The 'Days Lost' photo series may look like it features outtakes from the TV show 'Lost,' or is the set of a dystopian film like 'The Hunger Games,' but it actually takes place on outdoor paintball fields. Inspired by the war-mimicking activity, there is an eerie, mystical ambiance to each Days Lost still that speaks to something a little more fantastical than boys running around with fake guns and paint pellets.

Shot by photographers Katja Mayer and Peter Chadwick around the British countryside, the Days Lost photo series is a true representation of what can be found at these sites. It looks deceivingly abandoned and magically occupied at the same time. It is currently on view at the Print House Gallery in London.
