They That Are Left




for the past 5 years on remembrance day I have been shooting portraits of veterans, the portraits are all shot in the same style, crop etc, I am aiming to keep shooting it for at least another 5 years. The project is based around the concept of The Unknown Soldier
This is the intro from the book proposal

”...They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them…”

from Laurence Binyon’s ‘The Fallen’ (first published in The Times, 21st
September 1914)

“They that are left…” : ‘Remembrance’ portraits

rough edit is here

Superb Portraits and with dignity!

Are you focusing just on WWII veterans or is it all veterans regardless of where they fought? I'd love to see someone tackle the recent generation of "veterans" from more recent conflicts.

These are some really evocative and dignified images.
