THE PILOTS FIGHTING ISIS, PORTRAIT STORY FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES

On a recent trip to the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the Arabian Gulf on assignment for The New York Times I photographed some of pilots and co-pilots currently flying the bombing missions against ISIS. Over 4,700 airstrikes have been carried out in Iraq and Syria. The Times just published a series of the portraits I made with a story by their Pentagon correspondent Helene Cooper.
