Kyle Gustafson, the web director for Washingtonian Magazine, called me up a few months ago with an interesting proposition. He wanted me to shoot behind the scenes at Joint Base Andrews and show the receiving process for the wounded warriors coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan. The end result would be an online slideshow featuring my work. I just assumed it would be just a regular little online slideshow with the requisite little pictures, so I was surprised when I saw this. Now is that a great interface or what?! Major props to Kyle, who put this together special for Veteran’s Day and set up the access for me. It was a privilege to be allowed to shoot this process, which runs with dignified precision on a regular basis as the wounded are ferried home in giant planes.
Now for lots more pictures.
