Jeff Sheng’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Volume 1,” by artist Jeff Sheng, is the first ever published photography book that features the portraits and stories of closeted men and women still serving in the U.S. military affected by the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Policy banning gays and lesbians from openly serving in our military. “Volume 1,” published in January 2010, is the first book of a planned multi-volume series of the project by Jeff Sheng, and features 20 different photo shoots in full color from 17 different service members from across the United States, printed along with selected anonymous e-mails from some of these troops detailing their experiences.
