In Service by Julia Fullerton-Batten, a photographer based in London, England, it a photo series that will bring to mind the hit television drama, 'Downton Abbey.' It is a reflection on the Edwardian era in Britain and the servant culture that came hand-in-hand with it. Although a stylized version of the happenings in such wealthy homes, it also captures the exploitation and abuse that often went on behind closed doors.

This helps divide the two classes even further. The tableaus are captivating.
