Mark Peterson, Political Theatre – The Eye of Photography

Over the past two years Mark Peterson has photographed American presidential candidates as they lead rallies, meet with voters and plead for votes. He started shortly before the government shutdown in 2013 at a Tea Party rally at the US Capitol, when politicians were railing against President Obama and the Affordable Care Act—a show to get a sound bite into the next news cycle.

Peterson certainly has developed a style. His images have an intensity to them that can’t be achieved with mid-range or long lenses. And it’s a style that has suited him well over the years with clients that wanted someone who would bring “something different” to the table. I once assigned him to a college football game knowing full well, that I wasn’t going to see a single action picture when it came time to edit. And the results did not disappoint.
