Those sexy, naked amputee war veterans are now part of a sexy, naked book.
Fitness photographer Stokes, inspired by a shoot with veteran and amputee Alex Minsky, wanted to put a different spin on how wounded veterans were depicted — the result is pure art.
Always Loyal, a large-scale, hardcover coffee table book, showcases the beautiful side of wounded soldiers, whose injuries and/or lost limbs are detailed in intimate, exclusive photographs and information that provide a highly unique appreciation for those brave souls who have fought for the United States of America.
Some people will say to me ‘Oh, this is really helpful to their self-esteem,’ or, ‘You’re making them feel like men again. These guys have come to me very healed and ready to take the world on. I’m not giving them back their confidence. They already have it. — Michael Stokes
Always Loyal by Michael Stokes is available from amazon.com and amazon.co.uk
