If you ever wondered the psychological toll war has on a person, all you need to do is glance at these portraits by Lalage Snow.

The acclaimed British journalist, film maker and photographer created a portrait series poignantly entitled 'We Are Not Dead,' which shows soldiers before, during and after they have spent their time in war. These pictures really need no description as the powerful portraits are very telling of each soldier's condition. The saying that the eyes are the windows to one's soul has never been more accurate as in these shots. The pictures were taken throughout an eight month period and depict striking alterations from fresh-faced soldiers to more tired and dejected expressions.

Lalage Snow and his work is an intense series that celebrates the brave women and men who risk their lives fighting for their country.
