The Flag

Through a confluence of events, I have been granted very rare access to the highly specialized unit of the March Air Reserve Base Blue Eagles Honor Guard. I have documented the honor guard’s training exercises, and flag folding and presentation to next of kin at Riverside National Cemetery, one of the busiest veterans cemeteries in the nation. Capturing a scene that is repeated across the United States more than a hundred times per day, these photographs focus upon the flag and people’s relationship to it.
