Marked by the War (13 pics)

Posted in       21 Dec 2011       9850       12 GALLERY

What soldiers’ faces look like before, during, and after the war? You can see slight, but undeniable changes just by looking at their portraits.

 

'Marked' is a project by Claire Felicie who made black and white triptychs of marines before, during and after their tour of duty to Afghanistan. Felicie took these portraits of marines in the 13th infantry company of the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps from 2009-2010.

Maybe gay men or lonely sluts will find this interesting or entertaining. They look exactly the same before and after, except they are 1 or 2 years older. Stupid post, ridiculous project, showing shit.

Changes here are the eyes in the middle looked brighter with no shadow. Maybe the result of photoshop.

Most people look different before and after taking a big shit, so this doesn't prove or say anything.

THE WAR IS THE BIGGEST AND STUPID THING OF THE HUMANITY, GO AHEAD SOLDIERS GO TO THE FRONT WHILE A BUNCH OF HEARTLESS PRESIDENTS SEE YOU DIE IN CNN, WHY? YOU SOLDIER SAY YOU FIGHT FOR FREEDOM BUT YOU REALLY FIGHT FOR POLITIC AND ECONOMIC INTEREST AND YOU CAN LET YOUR FAMILY WITHOUT A FATHER, A HUSBAND, BROTHER OR SON ALL IN NAME OF "DEMOCRACY". TELL ME: IS TO DEMOCRATIC TO GO OTHER COUNTRY TO KILL PEOPLE YOU DONT KNOW? AND IS MORE DEMOCRATIC DIE ALONE, YOUNG AND A TOUSANDS MILES AWAY FROM YOUR FAMILY? WELL.... IF THIS IS DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM; IM GLAD NOT LIVE IN A COUNTRY HOW MADE WAR EVERY TIME IT NEED MONEY THANKS TO THE WEAPONS SELLED TO THE ALLIATES, OF WHIT THE PETROLEUM OF OTHER NATIONS, AMERICANS; WAKE UP; WAR DOESN´T SOLVE NOTHING JUST KILL PEOPLE AND HOPES.
I DON´T WANT OFFENT ANYONE, BUT JUST THINK A LITTLE BIT AND REALIZE THIS WORDS ARE TRUTH; ANY HUMAN ARE MY BROTHER, AND I RESPECT AND TAKE CARE BECAUSE I WANT HE (SHE) OR THEY SEE ME EQUAL, LIKE A BROTHER

I´M NOT COMMIE, LET ME GUESS, YOU ARE A PERSON WITHOUT SOCIAL LIFE, SURELY YOU PLAY CALL OF DUTY 8 HOURS AT DAY AND YOU THINK THE WAR IS LIKE THAT GAME, MAYBE YOU HAD A MISERY JOB, AND MAYBE YOUR CHILDRENS HATE IF YOU ARE ADULT PERSON OR WORST YOU HAVE MORE THAN 30 YEARS OLD AND YOU DONT HAVE EVEN A GIRLFRIEND, SURELY YOU HAVE TO MANY PROBLEMS AND YOUR LIFE IS SO EMPTY. AND YOUR BEST WAY TO FEEL BETTER IS INSULTING OTHER PEOPLE; I FEEL SHAME OF YOU, AND IF YOU CALL ME IDIOT, I DONT EVEN CARE, BECAUSE IM HAPPY WITH MY LIFE AND YOU CAN´T SAY THE SAME.
HAVE A GOOD DAY CNACNA, LOOK A LIFE, AND BE LESS STUPID, BELIEVE ME: THE STRONGER IS NOT HOW USE THE VIOLENCE AGAINST OTHERS BUT IS THE ONE HOW KNOW SOLVE PROBLEMS IN THE PACIFIC WAY. BRO.
