Last month I traveled to MANY military bases across the country to photograph a large group of women in the armed service. The photographs & the film are part of a story in this month’s GQ magazine. I interviewed around 20 women on their feelings of courage, gender influence, loyalty, the physicality, and sexism in the military. Their feelings were complex, and their experiences for widely varied. The issues of combat exclusion and women’s right to participate has been getting much attention these days, however the road is still very long ahead.
You can see more of this story on my site. I was extremely proud to take on this subject and to meet these women.
