Soldier

Feature

Friday, February 23, 2007

Last spring some billboards appeared along a highway near Syracuse, New York, just over an hour's drive from the Ft. Drum Army Base. On each billboard was an enormous close-up of a young man's head on a plain dark surface. Suzanne Opton took the pictures. Produced by Sarah Lilley.
