Rolph Gobits and Royal Ascot Week

In England, Royal Ascot Week is one of the most glamorous annual events for horse racing, with even the Royal Family in attendance to cheer on Queen Elizabeth’s horses. Last month, Rolph Gobits went to Waterloo Station, where the trains depart for Ascot, with his camera.

“What makes these Ascot races so special is that EVERYBODY must dress up—morning suits for men, and women must wear skirts and hats,” he explains. “Without this dress code, it is not possible to attend the races.”

These are some of the photographs he shot that day.
