My good friend wants to be an army photographer, at one point in my life I wanted to be an army photographer. Namely after I fucked up my first year of uni. In some ways I wish I’d have gone for it because you’d get to see some landscapes and images that no other human other than those in the army would ever get to see. More importantly you’d be able to capture that moment and share it with the rest of the world. In other ways I’m glad I didn’t because I was afraid that I might die or lose a limb. I’m not really scared of death anymore I think there is beauty and virtue in dying when your doing something you love. I’ve got a lot more living to do first but when it’s my turn it’s my turn. These pictures are taken in the midst of serious situations where people are revolting of just trying to stay alive. Fuck you and your fashion photography, fuck you and your landscape photography and fuck you who complains about the turmoils of being a model stating that was a hard day of work. SALUTE to those who capture moments that 95% would be too scared to even pull out a camera. You inspire the real. MORE HERE
