These three photographs were taken by a Navy Corpsman serving, at the time, in Afghanistan. They were chosen from among thousands of submissions to be part of Serving Abroad . . Through Their Eyes. This is a multivalent project, undertaken by the office of Art in Embassies (AIE) of the Department of State, in collaboration with the Department of Defense, in honor of AIE’s 50th anniversary.
His work is to be included in a still image photography exhibition that will be hosted by the Pentagon and other venues in the future.
It will also be included in a video-art collage by artist Lincoln Schatz, which will be created for the permanent collection in the new U.S. embassy in Kabul, Their Eyes will be featured on AIE’s website.
I am honored to get to post them to share with you first, as I am honored to know his family and they knew this would please him.
To Cody - you have an incredible talent, an admirable commitment to service and a really, really cool Grandma (Brighid's Place).
We are all very proud of you.
