The Soldiers’ side:
I have a friend in the Israeli Defense Force and I asked him if he could share some images from his time in the IDF. This is what he sent me:
Photos of the camaraderie between himself and his fellow soldiers, protecting each other, playing games, training in the dirt, sleeping on the ground in tents, learning new skills, even taking selfies….
But this image is my favorite. It depicts the humanity within the IDF
I requested this from him because I wanted to show something that the media doesn’t circulate: I’m trying to show the REAL moments, the REAL images, the REAL individuals who serve. I want to show that they are not faceless, but rather, that they are people with thoughts, personalities, ideas and so much more.
