14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Dressed in all black, she stood silently during the rally. She seemed steadfast and committed and I wondered what brought her there. I wanted to know if she had a family, and if they supported Trump as well. I wanted to know what has, or hasn’t happened in her life to this day that brings her to a decision on who she votes for. I wanted to know her policies; what was her stance on raising taxes, healthcare and the education system in her state? What changes did she want for her future that Donald Trump can do?
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.
