Captured Photo Collection » Ian Fisher : American Soldier Photos
"For 27 months, Ian Fisher, his parents and friends, and the U.S. Army allowed Denver Post reporters and a photographer to watch and chronicle his recruitment, induction, training, deployment, and, finally, his return from combat. A selection of photos from Ian’s journey are posted below." The link to the full project page isn't working at the moment, but the pictures alone are striking.

Annals of War: Exposure: Reporting & Essays: The New Yorker
"The picture transfixes us because it looks like the truth, but, looking at it, we can only imagine what that truth is: torture, execution, a scene staged for the camera?" Excellent New Yorker article by Philip Gourevitch and Errol Morris.
