Header photo: Viking Warrior by photographer Stuart Daffin LRPS EFIAP/s BPE5

Warriors, soldiers, knights, and others in combat, radiate strength, resilience, and courage. Using their physical, psychological and martial spirit, they fight in battles to secure victory in wars. 

Facing danger head-on to protect others, the image they cast is often of one who is fearless, powerful, heroic, and selfless. 

Unsurprisingly, they've captured imaginations throughout time in books, films, and various other art forms, including photography. 

This collection of images shows how creatives on PurplePort have interpreted or captured this persona in their work.
