Gene Gitelson (New York University, class of 1978), and James Barbosa (New York University, class of 2019), briefly described their experience in war, their reception at home, and their roles as veterans. The purpose of this project is to connect with New York University Veterans - and while I photograph them in the environment of their choosing, I ask them a few questions about their service and their education. (The interviews were completed on December 9, 2018. Since then, James Barbosa graduated with a bachelor's from Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. He is now pursuing a master's at NYU. NYU Alumni is an ongoing project).
