War has always been with us as a species. Within the last several years I have had the honor of helping to support my veteran brother in working on his local chapter of Wounded Warriors. The support offered by this organization is unparalleled. It has also prompted me to work on a visual project that would soulfully tell stories of the men and women who have sacrificed so much to keep us free. This will be an open ended project for me because each person's situation is different but the underlying story is much the same. It is one that can only be told by them. It is important that we give these families a voice individually as well as collectively. Though my work is a localized project, it has enduring impact and benefits on a worldwide scale. I would like to see this engagement grow even more.
