Photographer Brian David Stephens’ series of portraits of individual veterans, taken over eight years’ worth of Remembrance Day services. Though each of those pictured must have a compelling story to tell, Brian has embraced the concept of the Unknown Soldier. “The viewer is given no information just a portrait,” Brian said.
He added: “These faces then are as of unknown soldiers, no cap badges, no ribbons of spooling medals, no insignia for military rank. They are faces only. Each deep-etched with who they are and what they did, that we might look, and think - and thank them.”
