My brother Jeremy M. Lange is a photojournalist who works for the Independent, in Durham, NC, and also strings for the Times. He has spent the last several years working on a series, The War at Home, whose title is fairly self-explanatory. North Carolina is a state with a huge military presence, and he has been able to photograph a number of funerals, with family permission every time.
This week, selections from his series are being featured on BagNews, in their Originals section, along with discussion about how we look at news photography. I think it is an amazing collection of photographs, as well as a portrait of of our home state. The rest can be seen on his own site, under Projects. Jeremy also blogs about his work here.
