I got a notice a couple of days ago about the shortlist for a photography competition. One of the photographers shortlisted has taken some pretty gripping photos of soldiers in the Middle East.
Given the recent Petraeus hearings I thought these were very topical, and deserved wider viewing.
The photographer is Peter van Agtmael. Click here to see his work.
His work can also be found at the Photolucida web-based photo competition called Critical Mass.
Note I want you to visit his site and so have not copied any images etc.
This was posted earlier at DailyKos and I was encouraged to also post it here by TexasDem.
Hope you find these image illuminating….
