The Unknown Soldier: A Photography Exhibit by David Jay

From November 7 - 17, 2017, Duke University's Forum for Scholars and Publics will host THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER, the groundbreaking photography exhibit created by award-winning photographer David Jay. The exhibit will be held in the Fredric Jameson Gallery on the first floor of the Friedl Building on Duke's East Campus.

THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER is a series of large-scale photographs of young and severely wounded soldiers returning home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Jay photographed his subjects in military hospitals, in their homes, and with their families, in an attempt to capture their lives following their injuries.

The exhibit will occur in tandem with IN/VISIBLE WOUNDS, a speaker series by the Forum for Scholars and Publics designed to engage with the photographs.
