One photographer's personal portrait project of U.S. World War II veterans and their stories.

I'm Jeffrey Rease, a professional photographer based in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. I began this portrait project in April, 2019. It has become my passion to meet and photograph as many WWII veterans as possible—anywhere—and share the images and stories here and in print exhibitions yet to be determined. As a small gift to thank them for what they did so many years ago, I provide digital files and large prints for each veteran and their family. And I want to share those images and stories with you here.

If you would like to have me speak to your group about this project or if you wish to suggest a WWII veteran to be included, I would love to hear from you and I hope that we can arrange for that to happen. Just go to the Contact page and send me an email.
