Korea


These are some of the soldiers who's likenesses make up The Korean War Veterans Memorial. They are arranged as though slogging through a long hike across the battlefields of Korea.

This was the first time I'd been to the Korean Memorial during the day. I'd been there at night before, when spotlight illuminate each figure creating a very haunting effect.

The soldiers are both lifelike and unfinished, creating an odd conflict. The closer you look, the more unreal they appear.

It's an odd effect. The soldiers aren't the only elements of the memorial, but they are the most haunting.
