Description

This photo was taken at a World War II reenactment in Waxahachie, Texas in November of 2010. While my son participated in the event, he is not the subject of this photo. While it was only a reenactment, I thought this photo captured the realities of war. The soldier is moving forward, leaving a wake of dead bodies behind him. His head is turned slightly, as if he sees his enemy to the left taking aim at him--a circle of death and violence. My father was in the 101st Airborne during World War II, and I wept as I photographed this event. I knew this was the closest I would ever get to what he went through in the war.
