About the book:
This book offers an intimate look at the grassroots scenes of the historic 2016 Clinton campaign through the lens of Charles Burson, former Chief of Staff to Vice President Al Gore, who began his pursuit of photojournalism in 2013. Burson’s lens gives us an inside look at the commitment, passion, joy and pathos of those who went to the rallies, painted the banners, marched in the parades, made the phone calls, created the lists, adjusted the sound and light, knocked on doors, organized caucuses, staffed the headquarters in towns throughout the country and raised the money. Burson’s personal connections to this political world bring us close to the intricate workings of the Clinton campaign. The result is part visual journey, part memoir, layered with the stories of the people working on the ground in an unprecedented political landscape. Click here for more information about the book.
