The April edition of GQ magazine featured "Life During Wartime: A Soldier's Portfolio," which included photographs taken by individual service members deployed in support of the war on terror. GQ also created a photo gallery exhibit in downtown Manhattan open to the public until April 17."Thanks to inexpensive digital cameras...every airman, Marine, seaman was a photographer," read the portfolio article in GQ. "They have produced a remarkable, constantly evolving portrait of war.""GQ decided to ask servicemen, including military photographers, for their pictures of war," continued the article. "A deluge of images came in...from soldiers who had recorded their experience."According to Lauren Starke, a public relations representative for GQ, they had more than enough photos to choose from."[The GQ editor] went through more than 10,000 photos," said Starke. "He wanted to show a mix," she added. "Some photos are funny, some are sad," she said. "But they show daily life (in Iraq)."The Soldier's Portfolio exhibit is open to the public from 1:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday at 209 Elizabeth Street in Manhattan.
