Lance Corporal Anthony Espinoza Bravo Co. 1/5 Marines, wipes the salt and sweat out of his eyes which drips down out of his helmet at the end of a day long patrol out of Patrol Base Fires in Sangin District, Helmand province, southern Afghanistan on May 4, 2011. Fighting between the Marines and insurgents was at an all time low in the past year as farmers were in the fields harvesting the poppy crop. The Marines are waiting to see if the fighting will continue as soon as the farmers are out of their fields.

    The images do seem more “stylized” than war photos I am accustomed to seeing. They have almost a movie-like feel to them, and through focus, vignette, light and composition, really take your eye right to the intended subject matter. If it is “traditional” to present war photos that are essentially unmanipulated, then I suppose that could make these more artistic – the fact that the photog has offered more post-production interpretation to further communicate with the viewer. In the end, I think I am ok with this. It is never pleasant or comfortable to look into the aspects of war, but if a photog who is there and experiencing it with the soldiers can present dynamic images that garner the attention of a viewing audience, then good can potentially come from that, making the work important.

    I wish he would have fixed the horizon line. It’s already not photojournalism, why not fix the details to make a more stunning image.

    check out the images of WWII from Life Magazine photographer Horace Bristol. They have a strong stylistic quality to them
