Pray for Trump

I was sitting in the bleachers with the crowd, waiting for the rally to start. I looked at a woman sitting below me and she was writing intently on small pieces of paper. One of the notes read, "Dear Mr. Trump, we have been praying and fasting for you. We are doing everything we can for you, and we hope you are doing everything you can for us". 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.
