Project: Russell's Story

Russell's Story is a historical-fiction based story about Kenneth Russell, a B-17 bomber pilot serving in the Second World War. Instead of telling the story traditionally, I chose to make a photo album written from Russell's perspective. The photo album serves as a collection of his photos to tell the story of his training and service. Throughout the album, Russell writes down notes and memoirs about his journey that accompany the photos.

Below are some samples from the album, which will feature over sixty black-and-white illustrations made to look like vintage photographs.
