Iraq Vet: Bobby Joseph

This story just published in our paper today. It is about a local Marine who was hit by an I.E.D. in Iraq in November. Unfortunately, I met him for the first time in June, after the his recovery from the immediate injury. It is very difficult to photograph the past, but I tried my best to show his life now. I really enjoyed doing this story. Bobby was a very open about his life and allowed me in. I am very grateful for that. As always, I see glaring things missing from the complete package of photos. But, it is part of the process of TRYING to tell the ever-illusive COMPLETE photo story. I will continue to try.

These aren't all of the photos, but if you want to see more and read the story, please go to:
