Wars take their toll on every single being who is one way or the other into it somehow. Well the biggest is faced by those who literally fight; the soldiers.
Thinking on the same lines, the photographer Clair Felicie, carried out a project. She snapped some photos of marines in the 13th infantry company of the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps for 2009-2010, who were performing their duties in Afghanistan.
Each of the soldiers was photographed before, during and after the war. The photos speak for themselves. The changes are slight but undeniable. The part which expresses their condition best in these pictures (though no one can actually describe it but them: the soldiers) is their eyes, which go from satisfied to sad to gloomy. Look for yourself and discern these faces of war.
