To hell and back, soldier's lens captures journey

The first photos were raw and voyeuristic, as if the shooter were a vacationer taking a scenic tour through hell.

A dead body, left for Baghdad's feral dogs on the side of the road. A soldier, his rifle aimed down a derelict street as a group of Iraqi men stood behind him and laughed. A group of Iraqi women walking with a small child, blurred in an image Tyler Norager shot as his armored Humvee rumbled by.

The 21-year-old soldier from Clinton had sent the images home inside a camera that had been destroyed when his truck was hit by a roadside bomb. The blast sent shrapnel into Norager's face, neck and back and killed two men in his Humvee.

But it gave life to a new way of looking at the world for Norager.
