This Portrait Series May Restore Your Faith In Politics
Or at least it might remind you step back and breathe and remember we're all humans here.
Photographer Maegan Gindi traveled to political rallies for Trump, Sanders, and Clinton during the primary season, taking portraits of the supporters who showed up. Her project, Shots at the Rally, makes visible the voters who are reshaping American politics. "Working backwards from the presidential hopefuls to the individuals who legitimize their campaigns," Gindi says, "these portraits reflect the conversation America is currently having with herself. Together, they question how a candidate — and reflexively, democracy — is comprised of the sum of its parts, and what it means to be the face of those parts."
