Sidewalk Politics

The 2014 election season is underway and voters in the greater Bangor area are taking to sidewalks and street corners to show their political allegiances and advocate for the candidate of their choice. With a gubernatorial race, one open seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, an open U.S. Senate seat, and numerous state legislature races, Mainers  have some big decisions to make on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4

As part of a photojournalism project for my multimedia production course, I took to the streets to discover what statements voters and campaigns alike are making with the old-fashioned yard sign. Through engaging angles and contextual back drops, it is obvious the impact that these seemingly small political statements actually have.

The images featured were all  taken between Sept. 30 and Oct. 8, 2014 and were captured using an iPad Mini. Minor edits to lighting and cropping were made using Photoshop.
