Veteran Vision Project

Arizona State University student and photographer Devin Mitchell created the Veteran Vision Project to capture the diversity of veterans and their experiences. His powerful photos, which have received significant national acclaim, contrast veterans in uniform and in poses that reflect their life after military service. Below are photos and stories of the 32 ASU veterans included in the project. We are pleased to announce that Devin Mitchell received a CLAS Dean's Student Success Award for Spring 2016. Funding for this award is provided through the generous philanthropic support of the ASU President’s Office and alumni and friends of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
