2016 American Politics

Now that’s a headline that most people will gladly skip right now.  The fact of the matter is that there is a lot of divide, polarization and a political campaign process that seems to go on for years and years.  Perhaps down the road it will be exciting again to have been part of this process because after all it’s our democratic system and history.

Here are the two candidates, first the Republican Nominee for President, Donald Trump.  He was speaking at the Western Conservative Summit for the Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University.  Sarah Palin also spoke:

Donald Trump and Sarah PalinIn any political event (DNC, RNC, campaign stops…)  I find some of the most fascinating moments to be images of the protestors… Between the signs, and the passion, they are fun to watch, and some were pro-Trump and others anti-Trump, separated by a street and yelling at each other as the police watched carefully:

On the other side of the aisle, I also photographed the Democratic Presidential Candidate for President, Hillary Clinton on her campaign stop in Denver.  Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper accompanied her on stage:

I find these last two black and white images especially powerful.  Anti-Clinton protestors on the left, and a few faces in the crowd on the right…
