Photography: Michael Stokes “Always Loyal” & “Exhibition”

California photographer Michael Stokes has two new large-scale, coffee table, art books in the works. One features wounded US veterans (Always Loyal) and the other explores male figure studies (Exhibition).

Stokes is widely acclaimed not only for his work capturing the male physique, but in celebrating our wounded soldiers.

His Kickstarter campaign has 12 days left but his results there are spectacular. With an original goal of $48,000, he’s raised a jaw-dropping $203K.

Donations to his campaign include copies of one or both books.

The images are gorgeous and well-worth  drooling over pursuing. Take a look at some of the images to be included in the projects in the video below.
