If my father were alive today he would be 105; he was 60 when I was born. He was in the US Army during WWII, running the lab in a army hospital in the Midlands in England. He had many tales of the soldiers they helped, visits to London during the Blitz, etc. I grew up listening to his stories. This is a beginning of photographing as many veterans of foreign wars as I can. Listening to their stories (especially the WWII vets) as I take their portrait is a bridge to a part of my father's life I can only imagine.
