In April I visited a workshop on photography and the mystery of the human face (for all those who know: a br. Stephen workshop). It was pointed out that interestingly, we make a lot of efforts to keep our faces young and perfect. But all the cosmetics in the world will never be able to fully conceal the stories our eyes are telling. It’s a great thing trying to capture stories in a photograph.
We where shown an amazing and touching series of pictures by the photographer Lalage Snow. She photographed and interviewed British soldiers before they were sent to Afghanistan, during their deployment, and after returing home. “We Are Not The Dead” photos and interviews can be view on The Telegraph’s website.
