On August 8th, 2014, student and photographer Devin Mitchell began backpacking/traveling the west coast in search of veteran stories in hopes of documenting these individuals through the art of pictures. What resulted has developed into a landmark effort, joined in by several core advisors that are people whom Devin has met along the way. So far, the Veteran Vision Project has been an independent, privately funded and organized academic photo essay of American military service members through a series of pictures. Thanks to over 700 backers on Kickstarter, A photo book is being developed to display the veterans’ images, illustrating their stories during and after service. If you’re interested in participating, learn more about the project’s city schedule to see when they’ll be in a city near you!
