A SOLDIER’S PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY

Pictures are meant to capture moments, evoke emotion, and tell people’s stories. This semester one UTA photo journalist student and military veteran decided to pursue his dream by documenting the story of a group of soldiers currently fighting overseas in Iraq.  Junior journalism major Daniel Carde is a photographer for the UTA Shorthorn who has inspirations to become a war and conflict photo journalist upon graduation. In order to begin chasing his dream he recently decided to put himself in the line of fire, by spending ten days of his spring break in Iraq photographing the story of the soldiers who are fighting for our freedom.
