The eyes of Marines before, during & after Afghanistan. Photographed by Dutch photographer Claire Felicie. 

I wonder what the response would be without the premise of war…
That is, how did people react before knowing that these pictures were of soldiers before during & after a tour?
Is the knowledge of those things what make these images so provoking?
Or would it be more provocative not knowing before you look over these images?
Sometime to think about- the way we set up the story of an image can influence the message received by the observer.
