After the rockets red glare

Portrait of Ashley Gilbertson

The 4th July is a day for celebration, mostly. It’s the celebration of freedom for a nation, but it’s also a time to remember those who paid for that freedom.  And those who are still paying.

Make some time this week to drop over to Aussie photojournalist Ashley Gilbertson‘s site called Bedrooms of the Fallen. In 2011, Gilbertson won a National Magazine Award for his series “Bedrooms of The Fallen”, published as a work in progress (The Shrine Down the Hall)  in The New York Times Magazine.

After raising money last year on Kickstarter to finish the project, we hear the final book Bedrooms of The Fallen will be published in book form in 2013.
