About The Artist:

This photograph is incredibly unique as it is not a known or highly published image of the war or as a Carl Mydans photograph. Mydans traveled over 45,000 miles throughout the world during WWII with his wife, a fellow photographer, to document the War and specifically the casualties. The husband and wife team spent several years being held as Prisoners of War in the Philippines. Throughout his time in Europe, Mydans worked closely with TIME magazine and sent thousands of images home to them to document the effects of war throughout the world.
