Assignment Afghanistan

Photographer Elliott Woods, a veteran of the Iraq War, spent time embedded with a marine squad in Afghanistan. He became frustrated that he was taking all the "normal" shots of the marines on patrol, so began taking intimate close-up portraits of marines in full combat gear and stripped down at rest. He recorded their voices, and Jesse Dukes edited them. We share them this Veterans Day weekend. You can see more at the project’s site.
