These Portraits of Injured Veterans Remind Us of the High Price They Paid

David Jay worked as a fashion photographer for nearly 20 years. His stylish photos appeared in magazines like Vogue and Cosmopolitan. One day, he decided to do something different. Jay spent three years visiting and photographing wounded veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The images, collected in a series called The Unknown Soldier, capture the high cost that was paid by those serving USA. As Jay tells NPR:

“You can imagine how many times each of these men and women have heard a parent tell their child, ‘Don’t look. Don’t stare at him. That’s rude.’ I take these pictures so that we can look; we can see what we’re not supposed to see. And we need to see them because we created them.”

Warning! This post contains photos of injured veterans that are difficult to view.
