Worth a look: Christopher Anderson’s portraits from the RNC and DNC


Christopher Anderson’s, of Magnum and staff photographer for New York magazine, photos are always inventive and cut deep into his subject matter. His portraits from the Republican and Democratic National Conventions this week and last for New York magazine are my favorite coverage of the political conventions, and they look like no one else’s. I feel so many different and conflicted emotions looking through the images from both conventions: hope, aspiration, enjoyment, fright, worry, resignation, indignation, anger, desperation, sadness, intimidation, inclusiveness, engagement, distance, and on and on. Take a look through these galleries:
