 To help bring awareness to the Lakeshore Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps disabled veterans, I was commissioned to photograph this soldier who was blinded and scarred in a horrific bomb blast. A triathlete and an inspiration to countless disabled vets, he has been recognized personally by President Barrack Obama. To visualize both the darkness that surrounds him and the light that emanates from this joyous man, we built a black north-light tenting (as inspired by Irving Penn) and I photographed him him emerging out of the black into the sun. No lights were used other than God’s light.
