World War II Revisited

After my father died, my mother showed me his scrapbook from WWII. I had never seen it before. As I was scanning his photos, I noticed the captions that he wrote on the back. It appeared that these were images that he sent home to his family. In this series, I combine images from my father’s scrapbook with images that I took at the 60th anniversary of the D-Day invasion in Normandy. The combination of his playful, innocent musings of daily life in basic training with the remnants and aftermath of war creates a powerful statement of the harsh reality of war and the devastating loss.
