“I had scanned these images in the past for personal archival reasons. For this book, I sorted through the digital archive and printed about 200-300 images in small sizes. Like most traditional editing process, I spread the pictures out on multiple tables and just looked and let the feelings come through.
A lot of emotions came to the surface for me. Mainly the bond that I had experience with the people I served with. I really missed it but it also bought a lot of guilt because I kept choosing to romanticize something that was very tragic for the people who were victimized as part of our war.”
