Toronto artist's photographs show Americans 'Drunk on Trump'
Photos use double exposures to place Trump supporters and protesters side by side in one frame
Toronto-artist Sarah Palmer says her own curiosity motivated her to venture south of the border to photograph Trump rallies in Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York for an exhibition titled "Drunk on Trump."
The photographs use a double-exposure technique to show the contrast between Trump supporters and protesters at the rallies.
"I just wanted to create juxtapositions. In one photo, I wanted people to feel both sides," said Palmer.
Palmer said she found the experience of attending the rallies overwhelming, with crass language, anger and shouting commonplace. By making the photographs double exposures she hopes to replicate that confusion.
"I want them to feel a little bit overwhelmed ... I want them to feel what it was like and how confusing and chaotic it was."
The images will be on display Tuesday as part of The Gladstone Hotel's election viewing party, starting at 6 p.m.
