Photographer Michael Stokes’ Photos Of Nude Amputee Veterans Are In New Book

1

The Kickstarter campaign for his third coffee table book reached its $48,250 funding goal in just two days – and went on to raise $411,134 in total.

Now, photographer Michael Stokes, 52, is finally releasing Always Loyal, his much-anticipated hardcover book on November 15, featuring both male and female amputee veterans posing in sexy, confident shoots rather than in the more-prevalent solemn-style of photos. The book will contain plenty of new images from the series he began more than three years ago. And, thanks to the huge success of his crowdfunding venture, the photographer will be donating $20,000 to the Semper FI Fund, a charity that benefits wounded warriors.

The photographer’s previous book, Bare Strength, had a chapter on male veterans and another book released on the same day, called Exhibition, will feature five vets scattered throughout. Michael started the project unintentionally in 2012 when he photographed 26-year-old U.S. Marine Alex Minsky, a Purple Heart recipient who lost part of his leg when his truck ran over a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.

‘I wanted to approach it carefully,’ Michael told Daily Mail Online. ‘I was a fitness photographer who had an erotic edge to his images, and I wanted to shoot Alex the same way. But I didn’t want him to be in the position where he could be embarrassed.

The book will also feature images of a female Gulf War amputee veteran Mary Dague. Michael said that when he contacts wounded vets like Mary, they often already know who he is – thanks in part to the Daily Mail Online article that helped his project get attention in 2013.

オーストラリアで初めて発見された珍恐竜「エラフロサウルス」は肉食から草食へと変化する

エラフロサウルス

オーストラリアで初めて発見された恐竜「エラフロサウルス」復元図 Ruairidh Duncan

 オーストラリア、ビクトリア州で発掘されたやたらと首の長い恐竜は、少し変わったヤツだ。

 「エラフロサウルス」は、これまでタンザニア・中国・アルゼンチンから3種しか発見されていない珍しい恐竜で、オーストラリアで化石が見つかったのは今回が初めてだと、スウィンバン工科大学(オーストラリア)のステファン・プロパット氏は説明する。

 体高は小さなヒクイドリ(1.6~2.0メートル)程度。頭から尻尾の先端まで2メートルあり、短い腕には4本の指が生えていた。

 獣脚類に分類されるのだが、このグループは基本的にどの種も肉食である。つまりティラノサウルスヴェロキラプトルの親戚なのである。そのくせ、大人になると肉食から草食へと食生活を変化させていたかもしれないのだ。 続きを読む
