A thunderous standing ovation to B&W Magazine for their article featuring photographs and letters from a young US Marine on the battlefield in Iraq. See the current June 2004 Issue 31.

Quoting the editors: "Reading this unsolicited letter, we could not help but be touched to our core. It, and the selection of images the young Marine captured, are reprinted here not only as a tribute to the men and women in uniform, but to the human spirit and power of photography."

Not the sterotypical article for a fine art photography magazine. Also, this young man "made it" into the magazine via a non-typical path. I hope he makes it home safe and sound.
