Vince Aletti of The New Yorker said of photographer Suzanne Opton‘s collection “Soldier”, “The posture is vulnerable and startlingly intimate, as if these young men and women were facing someone in bed or on a stretcher…Opton catches soldiers both on guard and off, looking out and looking inward simultaneously, and we can only imagine what they’re thinking, what they’ve done, and what they dread.”
