These beautiful images were shot for Italian Vogue by photographer Steven Meisel and are part of an editorial called 'Make Love Not War.'

The whole collection has a really intense, raw feeling about them, and features the models in traditional war-torn environments. Despite this undercurrent of violence, however, the models' passion shines through. This is just one of those editorials that totally works in every way.

Implications - The 'Make Love Not War' editorial manages to capture the more intimate moments of war life rather than show battles. The editorial shows emotions that evoke the viewer to empathize with the women in the photos. In one shot, the woman is crying beside her male friend. This easily evokes a sadden feeling.
