L’America di Trump | Trump’s America

A photographic Spoon River Anthology of America today

I think it is the perfect visual illustration of Trump’s America, so well executed that it is almost harrowing. The ability to capture the soul of a nation, in photography, has always fascinated me as an idea. Renata Busettini and Max Ferrero have done it. They went there. They went all the way."
