During the last year of the Trump administration, I was living in a rural area of Joshua Tree, California. As Black Lives Matter, death counts, environmental disasters, and politics filled the news, I documented the minutiae of daily life with even greater attention to detail. By pairing these images with U.S. and world news headlines, my aim is to make visible the connection between the mundane and the catastrophic and to encourage viewers to think about everyday experiences as radical political acts.
