Christopher Anderson: Stump

Published by RM
Text by John Heilemann.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Christopher Anderson: Stump</I>.As one of today’s most influential political photographers, Christopher Anderson has enjoyed rare behind-the-scenes access to the inner workings of American political theater. Stump collects his color and black-and-white photographs from recent campaign trails--particularly from the 2012 Obama/Romney contest--that scrutinize the highly rehearsed rhetorical masks of, among others, Barack and Michelle Obama, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Newt Gingrich, Bill Clinton and others (including audience members at rallies). Removed from the context of reportage and sequenced here, these images accumulate a mesmerizing quality that is both frightening and hilarious. They are interspersed with other campaign-trail images, of fireworks, flags and other props of high pomp that attend such occasions. John Heilemann, author of the New York Times bestseller Game Change (on the 2008 presidential race), contributes an essay on Anderson’s work.

Christopher Anderson: Stump

Christopher Anderson: StumpStump is a thump of a word – blunt, unforgiving in its sound and abruptness. It is what’s left of a severed limb. It is also what politicians do on the campaign trail. They stump. Christopher Anderson’s collection of photographs from the 2008 campaign for president hammers that word over and over again, as his close-up, warts-and-all photographs of politicians fall one after another, bam bam bam, through this lushly printed book. Many of these photographs originally appeared in the New York Times Magazine as the campaign progressed, but to see them again, years later, bound together, is to witness a singular vision of human activity. The faces here – Condoleeza Rice, Newt Gingrich, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Joe Biden, Chris Christie (pictured here) and so many others, known and anonymous – are presented equally, filling each page. No party affiliation guides Anderson’s camera. Instead he focuses on the actions of the stump. The speaking, the watching, the arguing and the hoping, and most of all, the sheer fleshy humanity of politics. This nearly grotesque objectivity calls to mind the Neue Sachlichkeit of Otto Dix and other German artists in the 1920s. Stump is an unsparing glimpse of human activity, and one of the most compelling photography books of the year. Available at our booth at Paris Photo Los Angeles, opening Thursday, April 24. continue to blog
