Soldiers Before, During, & After Afghan Deployment

For many of us, it is impossible to imagine what it would be like to fight in a war, and for many of those who have had to it is impossible to forget. Photographer Lalage Snow documented the faces of several British soldiers before, during, and after their operational deployment in Afghanistan. The series of photos, called ‘We Are The Not Dead’, spans a time period of eight months. Along with the photos, each soldier expressed his/her thoughts and feelings at that time and these were used to caption each portrait on the artist’s website.
