These pics may or may not, depending on editorial discretion, end up in a new art/literary magazine in Sweden.  The general idea of the first issue is “tourism” and, after being at the NTC and seeing how soldiers carried stuff with them, I thought it would be interesting to photograph just these cheap, mass-produced military bags that are all used and have all probably traveled widely before ending up at a surlpus store in Glendale.  “See the world” is not really a reason I get from soldiers I talk to for enlisting anymore, but I remember when that used to be a major selling point of recruitment: military as tourism.
