p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Bernie/Cruz/Clinton/Trump/Bernie shot by a 5yr old on film


My son has been loading and shooting his own instant/35mm film since 2014. There's a bunch of reasons for why it happened but a quick oversimplification is that this project helps him cope with his home life (his mom was severely disabled by an incurable brain disease in 2013).

Fast forward to 2016 (and about a thousand instant and several hundred 35mm frames later) and he's been able to work with me on some cool/fascinating/challenging projects. One of which has been the 2016 campaign trail. In the end, he shot at the rallies of Cruz, Hillary, Bernie (twice), and Trump. I'm not very political -- definitely not enough to want to take my kid to a rally to get him interested in politics, but this just all sort of fell in our lap and he happened to really grow from and enjoy it. So it was a net positive experience for our little family.

Anyways, thought some fellow photographers might enjoy it seeing these scenes from a 5 year old's perspective


Getting searched and patted down by Secret Service before they let us go backstage haha.


Where Clive takes a big chunk of his pictures -- on my shoulders


Rosario Dawson introducing Bernie and Jane Sanders.



-----

Ted Cruz rally. Trump protesters (who were there to protest Cruz supporters) were yelling/cursing at Cruz protesters so Clive only wanted to stay about 30 minutes. He was over it so we left before Cruz came out.











-----

Hillary Clinton (Bill Clinton was rallying as Hillary was somewhere else)











-----

Trump protesters/supporters/rally.





























-----

Bernie's campaign put Clive on the list for a full access press pass -- I only got one as his guardian haha. They took Clive's project seriously and allowed the both of us to go anywhere the other press was allowed. They were incredibly kind to us

I'm still waiting to get those rolls back (he shot almost 3 rolls of portra 160 --- it was his second Bernie rally (which was the rally he had the most fun at) so I figured we'd celebrate wrapping up the primaries with some color. Can't wait to see them. But here's some of him behind the scenes this past Sunday…








Joe Dusel sent this to me



That last one is an iPhone pic

It's been a fun project but I'm glad the primaries are over! I'm sure we'll be at it again when the general election rolls through

He's got a fun feed on Instagram, if you're bored -> @makingofabraveman

Fantastic. I'm at work right now, so I can't write more -- but you should be proud, both as a parent and as a photographer.

Both you and Clive should feel proud of what you both have accomplished. Just wonderful! Tell Clive that I really enjoy seeing things from his perspective!

Would love to follow his work and see him grow!

You've given your son a marvelous experience. Some coach baseball, some do even better. Maybe you'll be working for him someday.
