Marked for Lifeaf Den Kongelige Livgarde, Jan Grarup
What is the impact on a soldier who has a close encounter with death? What physical and emotional scars does a soldier bring home from a warzone? And what does the soldier maintain from these extreme experiences? Marked for Life tells the spectacular story of the tattoos soldiers from The Danish Royal Life Guard got before, during and after their missions abroad. More than 60 soldiers show and tell the texts and images, they have marked in ink on their body to maintain their personal stories from wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Balkans. Marked for Life is photographed by world renowned photographer and World Press Photo-winner Jan Grarup.
