U.S. Presidential Campaign Trails (in chronology)
From the first black president, to the first female to potentially occupy the Oval Office, to a reality TV star candidate with a much-discussed hairstyle and derogatory tongue, the U.S. presidential campaign trail has hardly been accused of being boring. Since first setting foot on the campaign trail in 2007, I've felt drawn to both its theatricality and red tape. Each season offered a new source of fascination: the excited vigor of the 2008 Barack Obama campaign, the sudden restrictions to access by Mitt Romney in 2012 (very much on the way of becoming the norm,) the polarizing rhetoric of the 2016 Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton campaigns, paired with an increase of violence toward protesters and the press.
