“Incognito”

by Antonin Kratochvil

These strange yet incredible images of the infamous were taken over a period of ten years, photographed on assignment for magazines such as Premier, Entertainment Weekly, Detour, and The New York Times.

“Bedrooms of the Fallen” by Ashley Gilbertson

The bedroom of marine Cpl. Christopher G. Scherer, 21, in East Northport, N.Y. Scherer was killed by a sniper on July 21, 2007 in Karmah, Iraq.

“Bedrooms of the Fallen”

by Ashley Gilbertson

These bedrooms once belonged to men and women who died fighting in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. These fallen men and women were blown up by IEDs, RPGs, hand grenades and suicide bombers. They were shot down in ambushes and by snipers. They died in helicopters, in humvees and in tanks. It all took place thousands of miles away from home, and the country they fought to defend.

The purpose of this project is to honor these fallen – not simply as soldiers, marines, airmen and seamen, but as sons, daughters, sisters and brothers – and to remind us that before they fought, they lived, and they slept, just like us, at home.

This series, along with an additional set of photographs from other NATO allies was published by The University of Chicago Press in 2014.
