Iowa Republican Caucus

Lars Tunbjörk didn’t have to look very far to find, in the middle of no where in the US, what makes his work so special… Which is the sudden appearance in what seams like a perfectly normal daily life of absurd and comical situations.

On his assignment to cover the Iowa Republican’s caucuses, Swedish photographer Lars Tunbjork is following the candidates on their electoral marathon.
Mormon Mitt Romney and his wife Ann shaking hands in small town’s gymnasium, devout Rick Santorum praying before a plate of nachos, Rick Perry getting the crowd riled up, and finally Newt Gingrich accompanied by Ellis the Republican Elephant…They are all offering to the photographer’s lens their own version of that American dream they seek to embody.

As an answer, Lars Tunbjörk gives us the other side of the coin; with its dull plains upon which the starry banner floats, and its supermarkets’ car parks where the out-of-breath campaigners wait.
