'War Hero' in Dazed & Confused Shows a Series of Fashionable Soldiers

— June 18, 2010 — Fashion
'War Hero' in Dazed & Confused takes on the tender topic of wounded soldiers through the lens of fashion. Richard Burbridge is the photographer behind the shoot, which is styled by Robbie Spencer and features models Anthony Murrell, Taras Koultun and Aiden Andrews.

The bizarre shoot features yarn used as scars, graffiti-esque stitches and baby doll parts to simulate disfiguration. See more shots of 'War Hero' in Dazed & Confused above.

Implications - My favorite looking among these 'War Hero' images has got to be the one seen as the cover image of this impressive gallery. The way they used yarn to emulate skin cracking is quite simply astounding to me.
