Pics Of Soldiers Before, During, And After War
 

 
Photographer Lalage Snow, who is currently based in Kabul, Afghanistan, embarked on an 8-month-long project titled We Are The Not Dead featuring portraits of British soldiers before, during, and after their deployment in Afghanistan. Similar to Claire Felicie's series of monochromatic triptychs, Snow captures the innocent expressions of these men transformed into gaunt, sullen faces in less than a year.

The three-panel juxtaposition allows the viewer to observe the physical changes a stationed soldier in a war zone goes through. Time is sped up for these men under the beating sun, amidst combat. Regardless of age, the boys that went in came back as men with experiences beyond their years. As weathered and worn as their skin or sunken in faces may appear, it's their dilated eyes that are the most telling.

Additionally, Snow's series accompanies each triptych with quotes from each of the servicemen that gives a great deal of insight into their mental and emotional state at each given time. Sergeant Alexander McBroom's first portrait, before deployment, features him bravely saying, "I am not worried about going out - it is my job after all." Three months later, he is quoted as saying, "It has been an eye opener." And, finally, another four months after, he says, "It is always that fear, that apprehension, what is going to happen if I get blown up?" Having gone through life-altering trials and warfare, it is no surprise that fear is no longer a foreign feeling to these courageous men.

Snow's intention with the series is to not only honor their bravery by featuring them, but to also draw attention to every soldiers' psychological transformation. She says, "It was a very personal project and stemmed from having embedded with the military on and off for 4 years in Iraq and Afghanistan and bearing witness to how many young men return as shadows of their former selves and, in many cases, with deep, psychological scars. As the body count of British servicemen k!lled or wounded rose and the political ramifications of the British armyís presence in Afghanistan became increasingly convoluted, more and more soldiers felt like they didnít have a voice, or at least, werenít being listened to. We Are The Not Dead is an attempt at giving the brave young men and women the chance to explain how it really is."

You can definitely see a difference in these peoples persona. Mostly their eyes.

I bet if the order was at random, most of you couldn't get more than 50% of them in the correct order.
The biggest clue would be weight loss

Everybody lose weight when they got to war. Either you at an outpost not getting fed, or you in the gym. If you get fat on a deployment your a loser.

PsychoCybernetics is aware that ones psychological state directly reflects out to influence ones physical state. PsychoCybernetics is aware of the psychological trauma these men have possibly gone through and is in hopes that they use their newfound wisdom to become constructive rather than destructive towards others.
