14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
I met this man waiting outside a Trump rally. He said he was holding the T-shirt up to his chest to show his support and his solidarity for Trump. He was on one side of the street, and the protesters were on the other. He wasn’t talking to anyone; he wasn’t yelling. He was just looking at them and holding the shirt up to his chest.
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.
