Amy Forestieri is one of those veteran photographers.She documented her work with Jesus on Colfax, a nonprofit that serves the homeless and those living in poverty along Colorado's legendary road.
"I stayed in the motel, I spent a lot of time on Colfax. I created relationships where people were comfortable with me using the camera, and I just started blending in," Forestieri said.
Other veterans photographed Cajun food, Jeeps in the Colorado wilderness, a pilot and street scenes around Denver.
