Brooklyn-based photographer Sasha Maslov started the Veterans series in 2009, traveling to capture the veterans of World War II, regardless of the role they played. He has since lost many prospective subjects; as you can imagine, there are fewer and fewer living people who took part in the war each year. He photographs them in their homes, sometimes in their uniform, at their kitchen tables, in their living rooms — some opulent, some meager but dignified. “The walls of their homes can tell a lot about their lives,” Maslov says in his Kickstarter video. From the Ukraine to Italy to the US and Austria, the journey has been self-funded until now. With an exhibition slated and a small documentary in the works, his project could use an urgent boost so that Asia and other parts of Europe can be represented as well.
