An exhibit opening this week in Chicago offers a rare close-up look at the Navy SEALs.

The exhibit at the Pritzker Military Museum & Library will feature more than 80 black and white images of SEALs and their families shot by photographer Stephanie Freid-Perenchio.

She was given what the museum calls unprecedented civilian access to the elite military force and accompanied SEAL teams abroad and in the States in the aftermath of 9/11.

She says she hopes the exhibit will help people "better understand the sacrifice these men and their families make."

Other items on display will include artifacts loaned from the Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, Florida, including uniforms, equipment and keepsakes dating back to World War II.

The exhibit opens Thursday and runs through Dec. 31.
