Of Innocence and Of Experience examines photographs of U.S. service members deployed in support of the global war on terror since the U.S. went to war in Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003. This series shows the modern-day warrior and the child they grew from. Personal imagery collected from each military member is collaged with an image from their childhood. The inherent humor from this stark contrast is broken by the 9mm bullet holes shot through, physically destroying the image. This act represents the destruction of war, both physically and mentally, leaving us to contemplate its effect on the individual.
