War Photographs: The Untold Story Of Plastic Army Men, Part 2

Part 1

I find working with little plastic army men to be rewarding. I'm not able (or willing) to be a war photographer, but I am able to create "war photographs" using these toys.

I also like the commentary. Are these men pawns? Do we toy with them? Do we understand what is going on? Do we respect them? Do we have empathy? Do we care? Is there some commonality between little plastic army men and the real men and woman that bravely serve in the Armed Forces?

All of these were captured using a Samsung NX200.
