Iraq portrait photography. the story behind.

I took this portrait while I was in Iraq in 2005.  These are local Iraqis that I worked with everyday.  

They were from a town called Habbaniya.  

In the months that I was there I built some interesting relationships with these guys.  

They all had a story.

One of the greatest lessons I learned being around these folks is that there is literally no difference from one human to another.   We all have families, struggles and passions.
