Army Portraits – Before, During and After

This set of portraits by photographer Lalage Snow look at what war does to people, with three simple portraits – one before going to war in Afghanistan, one during and one after.

We can see the pain and fear in the faces of these men so powerfully. And with this we see the true power of photography – three simple images can convey so much. And even though these aren’t documentary or journalistic photographs, they tell such a personal story about what war does to a person.

A beautiful, heart-wrenching idea.
