David Jay is a man who I am totally obsessed with. David Jay is a photographer that raises awareness by taking photos of people where we would typically look away. Staring is rude, right? His photos demands your attention. I had the pleasure of meeting David Jay at his exhibit in Houston for The Scar Project which focuses on breast cancer. David Jay’s work is amazing and it’s the truth. David Jay was previously a fashion photographer for nearly 20 years prior to his shift in photography. His latest project, The Unknown Soldier touches me deep. I spent two years in Iraq and I could have easily been injured or killed. Many emotions are going through me now as I write this post. I am just grateful and blessed that I was able to experience my military career and to be where I am today. I have so much respect for David Jay and his work. Take a look at all of the photos from The Unknown Soldier and all of his other projects here.
