In the spring of 2006 some billboards appeared along a highway near Syracuse NY, not far 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. Photographer Suzanne Opton tells us how she came to make her series of portraits she calls “Soldier.” It’s on view now at the James A. Michener Museum in Doylestown, PA. Produced by Sarah Lilley.
