To McCain, It’s A Game

American photojournalist Christopher Morris is having a show at London’s Host Gallery of his icy-cold images from the 2004 and 2008 presidential campaigns of Bush, McCain, and Obama. (Above is one of his Republicanbots.) I’m not sure how effective these images are, but the show is called My America, and The Guardian has a video interview with him here.

Here are some more of his images.

If that image were black and white it would be hard to tell this audience from one from the late fifties; all those suits, white shirts and simple ties. They could be listening to Joe McCarthy.

I agree with Vince. That's a pretty nice looking Republicanbot.

@ 1& 6 when you get to the page you have to click on "photographers" on top of the otherwise empty page.

He rather looks like one of those angelic young men so often depicted in photos of Hitler Youth rallies. Pretty isn't everything. Sometimes it isn't even very much. (BTW, no other pretty boys in the portfolio of images)

Get his book (same title as the show); spooky reportage of Bush's 2004 campaign.

Eek. Reminds me of Bobby Beausoleil (of the Manson family). Same dead eyes. Not hot. Looks like he'd write helter skelter on the wall with your blood.
