VISUAL NARRATIVE OF A FORGOTTEN HERO

 

This book is a visual interpretation of my great grand uncle's experiences in WWI. During the war, he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest honor for valor in action against an enemy force. I extracted text from letters he sent home during the war and paired them with images. This curated narrative, recreates history from a personal perspective.
