Semper Eye

Scott Casimiro, a former United States Marine Corps sergeant, lost an eye while overseas. Instead of the standard replacement, his false eye is emblazoned with the gold emblem of the Marine Corps. Here, he participates in the Marine Corps Ultimate Challenge Mud Run in Swansea, South Carolina. Photographer Jodi Martinez is herself a member of the U.S. Air Force as part of the Combat Camera unit, which documents overseas exercises and humanitarian efforts.
