portrait series on vets, looking for feedback and advice

I’ve been working on a portrait series of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans for about 2 years now called Warriors for Peace- it focuses on the veterans who are working to end war and create peace. It looks deeply at the emotions and stories behind their resistance to war. I’m looking for feedback on the series and more importantly advice on distributing the series both in the editorial and fine art world. It has been shown in several group and solo shows but I haven’t really starting pushing it yet. I’m now nearing completion though so I’m looking to begin pushing it around and I don’t honestly have much of a clue where to go with it. You can see some of the series through my ls gallery- http://www.lightstalkers.org/galleries/slideshow/22998 or on my website here- http://jonorlandophoto.com/?page_id=17
Please take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks much, Cheers- Jon O. www.jonorlandophoto.com

Nice work Jon. Try BURN Magazine- thats David Alan Harvey’s on line magazine for Emerging Photographers.

They show a lot of work and have a pretty humungous audience.

Thanks a lot ya’ll. I appreciate the feedback. I’ll submit to Burn- keep your fingers crossed. I’ve always dug that site. And yes the project will be continued. I’m going to get up to about 35 portraits and then it will be done. Hopefully by Spring. I’m releasing about 6 new images in the coming weeks that I recently completed on a trip to the northeast.
