I think 'Boys with guns' is a frightening concept, yet Ken Hermann has decided that it is in fact a very photographic one. Taking portraits of weapon-wielding men, I can't tell if these are true military/army personnel or models pretending to be so.

In the end, however, 'Boys with guns' is a powerful portrait series that needs no distinctions. It puts a face on the "war against terrorism," making the whole situation feel a lot more real. Stats for Weapon-Wielding Wartography Trending: Older & Chilly
