This series of photographs came about in a short period of time whilst visiting the USA in early 2020

I had no comprehension of the extreme social polarisation caused by the current Administration.

Each subject was privately asked ”what is your point of view on your current Presidency?’

Without bias or favour I documented their comments.

At draft stage some 'pro Presidency' sitters excluded themselves from the series.

In conclusion this body of work represents my view of the current political state in the USA which in turn has a huge impact on ’The State of the World’.
