Photographer's Note

The 6x9 phalanx of soldiers comprise the graduating class at the Marine Corps University in Quantico, Virginia. I had been touring the Marine Corps Museum when 52 men and 2 women filed into the lobby, and took their seats. Standing in the Second Floor Gallery, I had an unusually good vantage point to watch the ceremony. The event turned out to be a rehearsal for a diploma presentation ceremony scheduled for the following day.

LIFE IMITATING ART

As several friends pointed out (and as I had planned initially) this photo is reminiscent of the ancient Terracotta Army shot by BWJ.
