Crooked Hillary

I was becoming desensitized to everything by the end of the Republican National Convention . All of the pins and signs with hateful messages on them, all of the Crooked Hillary merch up for grabs, and everywhere you turn there’s something more ridiculous to witness than the last. Then I see a guy sleeping in a chair on the busiest street of the convention and I thought it was perfect. He must have been over it by that point too, and just gave up and decided to have a nap. This is an image from my ongoing series, Drunk on Trump, an outsider's view on the Trump phenomenon in the U.S. I shot them in my usual style of multi-frame exposures on film, with no manipulation in post, adding to the sentiment that this is a confusing dream we’re all just trying to make sense of.
