Claire Felicie followed 20 young Dutch Marines from the 1st battalion, 13th infantry company between October of 2009 and September 2010 through their deployment in Afghanistan in order to photograph the changes in their faces during the experience. In each set of portraits, the men are pictured before, during and after from left to right. “At first I saw nothing”, she said of the final shoot. “They were saying they were doing well. But when I put the photographs together I noticed the difference with most of them. The changes weren’t the same- some looked scarier, others looked more mature.” The camera she used while on the ground in Afghanistan, a heavy Mamiya 6×7 camera, allowed her just one shot of each man- a testament to the real changes the men showed in their faces.
