14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience

Two sisters arrive at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, OH, in July 2016. They didn't claim to be supporters, but simply seemed to want their time in the sun, in front of the major media outlets also in attendance that week. 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.
