Veteran Thomas Ernest Carr by xbatsatnightx Veteran Thomas Ernest Carr by xbatsatnightx
I am begining a series of portraits of war veterans. This is T.E. Carr. He served in 4 battles of World War II. He survived a morter attack where 20 surrounding men were killed. He got hit with shrapnal in the legs and forhead. He is 93 years old and is legally blind. Other than this, he is very healthy.


shot on a 4x5 camera.

I don't know about photography, so pay me no mind if I'm wrong, but this kinda looks more like an ID shot rather than a portrait, I think perhaps this might've looked better a bit zoomed out. Funny thing is that when you look at someone like this you think: 'Grandpa! ^_^' and not soldier.
