In August of 2020, I started the project Pushed To The Edge, a series of photomontages that explores the relationship between Donald Trump’s inner turmoil and his deeply unrealistic views of reality. I had decided against photojournalism as form of documentation, instead using the photomontage process to explore the skewed and often harmful perceptions of Donald Trump and his enablers. The space in which the characters play out their narrative is theatrical and it echoes Trump’s own distorted view in his surroundings.
