Historic photograph

This photo series is called ‘Marked.’ The first image of the men, whose ages range from 18 to 26, was taken 5 months before they were stationed in Afghanistan. 

For the 2nd image, Felicie went to the Middle East during their 6-month service and took their portraits. 

The final pictures were taken two months after they had returned. 

These men claimed they were unchanged by the war, but didn’t want to go into detail about their personal experiences.

Felicie has a book of her photography, entitled 'Here Are the Young Men,’ that includes personal notes on how her son being deployed to a warzone affected her personally.

“1880’s Austrian women’s fencing team poses in the fencing style of sword and dagger.”

From the website of Christopher L. Oberg:

“In the early 1900’s Fencing was chosen as an olympic sport featuring the three weapons we know today. Historical fencing styles featuring back sword, rapier and dagger ect. are no longer fashionable when compared to the modern olympic fencing games of foil, epee and saber.”
