Holdaway’s ‘The Known Soldier’

I somehow missed this in my earlier browsing through Larry Holdaway’s site: The known soldier. It’s a composite image created by combining the portraits of 1087 American soldiers killed in Iraq between March 2003 and October 2004.

Holdaway describes it as “haunting,” which is a pretty good word for it. He has some more composite images of a political nature, too, including one of the man whose war made the first composite possible.
