Entry Description

Beginning with the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last year and working my way to the present, I have been interested in capturing the spirit, the individualism as well as the archetypes that I see standing out from the throngs of clever signs holders and protest goers. The full range of human expression and emotion is put on display and while the media focuses on the numbers, i’m interested in the people and the lengths they're willing to go in both defensive and use of our freedoms. Now in post election retrospect, I feel as though I managed to capture the Democratic rift and disillusionment that occurred in the wake of the DNC email scandal.
