12 Soldiers Were Photographed Before, During, And After War. The Result Is Disturbing.



War changes people. If the number of veterans suffering from PTSD isn't enough to convince you of this, the photographs by the journalist, photographer and filmmaker Lalage Snow might be. For her 'We Are The Not Dead' series, Snow decided to make a series of photos portraying fourteen British soldiers.

War has been the greatest vice mankind has brought to life. Kennedy said "Mankind must put an end t war before it puts an end to mankind." Looking at these pictures it looks like humanity is on the losing side.

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.

Meet Private Chris MacGregor and the tales this picture so wishes to tell you, but can't.
