The Other War is a photo and video project about young military widows from across the country. Our goal is to create honest and intimate portraits that will stand as a lasting testament to the “other side” of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

As the project progresses, we plan on bringing this work to the public with a traveling exhibition and publication of a book of the portraits and stories.
