Soldiers Before, During, and After Deployment in Afghanistan

For many of us, it is impossible to imagine what it would be like to fight in a war. For many of those who have had to, it is impossible to forget.¬†That is the truth photographer Lalage Snow revealed when she documented the faces of several British soldiers before, during, and after their operational deployment in Afghanistan. The series, called “We Are The Not Dead,” spans a time period of eight months. Along with the photos, each soldier expressed his or her thoughts and feelings at that time, which appear as captions with each portrait on the artist’s website.
