Portrait photographer Suzanne Opton’s latest monograph Soldier / Many Wars reflects a curiosity about the military at a time of war. Focusing her lens on soldiers who recently returned from their tour of duty in Iraq, her images are both emotionally and politically poignant. “It is not sensationalism I am after. I am after the human being,” writes Opton.
