16 Extremely Powerful Photos Of Veterans Show Their True Self Behind The Uniform

[mashshare]

This incredible photo series called The Soldier Art Project shows just how diverse America’s veterans are beneath the uniform. Photographer Devin Mitchell created this series to give people a better understanding about the men and women who fight for our country. The use of mirrors acts as an optical illusion to tell their stories of who they were when they were in the service and who they are now, Mitchell told ABC 15.

In an interview with Mic, Mitchell stated, “The military community has expressed their interest in using my art to communicate how many of them feel to be living double lives while serving in the military,” Mitchell told Mic. “People who have never served have shown interest in knowing more about the diversified aspects of what causes veterans to feel that way.”
