Behind the Scenes of Bagram, an Afghan Airbase in Limbo | WIRED:
Photographer Jason Koxvold spent three days in June at Bagram for Black-Water,a series exploring what it means to be perpetually at war in the Middle East. It includes images taken in Kuwait and elsewhere in Afghanistan, where Koxvold documented what the reduced US military footprint—down from 180,000 troops when President Obama took office to 10,000 now—looks like. He spent time in Kabul,where troops remain stationed under the NATO mission Operation Resolute Support, but found Bagram offered a sharper look at US involvement. “[It’s] much more of an American project,” he says.
