Raymond McCrea Jones is an award-winning photographer and writer based in Atlanta, Georgia. His editorial and commercial photography has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Adweek, Forbes, The Hollywood Reporter, Entrepreneur Magazine, Stern, Outdoor Life and more. Prior to relocating to Atlanta in 2011, Jones was on staff at The New York Times where he produced and photographed pieces for almost every section of the benchmark publication.
“Birth of a Warrior” documents the transformation of 162 civilians as they become soldiers. Photographer Raymond McCrea Jones spent ten weeks in 2013 following a company of recruits during basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia. Jones was with them every step of the way from 4 a.m. until late at night through arrival, processing, outfitting, marching, inspections, drills, physical training, combat and weapons training, live fire exercises, and on through to graduation. His photographs capture a profound study of the lives and culture of those who choose to go to war."
