The Columbus Museum and Columbus State University’s Department of Art present Birth of a Warrior, featuring photography by Raymond McCrea Jones. These stunning photographs highlight the transformation of 162 young men from across the country into the U.S. Army Delta Company 2/47 while in boot camp at Fort Benning. McCrea Jones’ documentary work brings profound insight to these soldiers’ stories and looks at the culture and humanity of those we ask to go to war.


Raymond McCrea Jones is an award-winning photographer, writer, and filmmaker whose editorial and commercial photography has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Forbes, among others. Formerly on staff at The New York Times, he now lives and works in Atlanta.
