14 Soldiers Photographed Before, During And After They Went To War: The Result Is Shocking

"We Are The Not Dead" is a really clever project by photographer, journalist and filmmaker Lalage Snow, based on how was can change people. Snow decided to make a series of photos portraying some British soldiers' faces over a period of seven months, before, during and after their operational deployment to Afghanistan. His purpose was to show how these people's faces started changing and how their expressions became completely different. This, of course, is a physical change which is directly connected to the emotional change these men went through.

Fighting in a war is tough. Soldiers learn how to be brave but how to be cruel as well. Snow’s intention with the portraits was not only to honour the soldiers' courage, but to also sensitize the public opinion over the psychological and emotional transformation that every soldier goes through.

    1. I don't get it. Is this some sort of concept? Why are the eyes in the middle photo always tweaked? What's the message?

    2. They're not tweaked. It's the lighting I assume. BTW middle photo looks like they're touched by evil inside, I thought they were post-war photos, but seems these guys must be treated somehow, since they don't look that anymore.

  2. They look like anyone else aging over time, no apparent physical abnormalities in their faces that anyone could guess was caused by war.

    1. Aging four to five years over a seven month time period is considered abnormal.

  3. We must remember that they volunteered to go into the military. Not like before when you had no choice but your family was connected, like Cheney.

  4. They don't seem any different to the faces of doctors and surgeons I have met over the years, .... errr.

  6. I think it's less about the physical changes, but more about the look in their eyes. Some have either become numb, others PTSD, or just plain evil.
