About The Unknown Soldier

David Jay, whose Scar Project depicted the raw power and beauty of men and women affected by breast cancer, has turned his lens toward soldiers returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. His unforgettable and powerful collection of 15 life-size portraits of soldiers reveal the oft unseen consequences of war.  The honesty and vulnerability captured in the photos, David says, “Transcends the brutal simplicity of ‘war’ and asks the viewer to bear witness to the fruits of our collective endeavors, and reconsider the simple but immense power of our daily interactions . . . and the future they create.” 

On November 12, 2011, 1st Lieutenant Nicholas John Vogt was severely injured by an IED while on a foot-patrol in Panjwaii, Afghanistan. When David Jay first visited Walter Reed in Washington, D.C. to take photos of injured soldiers, Nicholas didn’t want to participate. But after spending an entire year working on his recovery, Nicholas gave David permission to photograph him with one condition: He had to be moving. Nicholas says, “I didn't want to portray myself as someone that's just waiting for medical retirement and going to be stationary for the rest of my life." David Jay obliged and shot this mesmerizing underwater photo that reveals the resilience, raw power, and beauty of the indefatigable human spirit.
