Portraits of Soldiers Before, During & After Deployment Will Leave You Breathless (PHOTOS)

soldierWhat does a soldier look like before, during, and after war? Photographer Lalage Snow's series We Are the Not Dead has answered that question with high-resolution clarity. Using British soldiers, Snow captured their faces before deployment to Afghanistan, during their tour, and once they'd returned home. Her images are as striking as they are revealing. The soldiers' physical transformation over the short year is palpable, if not their emotional one, as well.
