This is the 8" x 8" Softcover Version, first released in September, 2010. 100-pages, full color, with an introduction by Congressman Patrick J. Murphy, and essays by Major Mike Almy and David Mixner. "Don't Ask, Don't Tell: Volume 2," is the second photobook featuring the portraits and stories of closeted service members in the United States armed forces who are currently serving and affected by the laws that mandate the discharge of openly gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans-identified soldiers in the United States military. In 2010, American artist Jeff Sheng continued his photo series "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and flew over 70,000 miles back and forth across the country to photograph over 40 more service members at either their homes or local hotel rooms near where these individuals were stationed. An entirely self-funded and self-published project, the resulting publication features these new portraits from these photo shoots, along with selected anonymous e-mails detailing the experiences of these soldiers, many of whom have just returned from fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. "Don't Ask, Don't Tell: Volume 1," was been featured in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Time and ABC World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer. Jeff Sheng is a Los Angeles based artist who also teaches at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His photographs have been published in the New York Times Magazine, Time Magazine, and Newsweek, his art work has been exhibited internationally including at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.
