Blue Donkey & Red Elephant

The longform multidisciplinary documentary project explores the dichotomous political identities within the American society. It’s an investigation of diverging ways of life, social settings, perceptions and behaviors within the political spectrum. The work comprises photography, video and audio, thus assembling, contrasting and balancing diverse voices and notions in a complex narrative. Using the foreground of the electoral fracas, my intention is to look at the sociological backgrounds and establish a deeper and more subtle visual narrative in a comprehensive form.

The project is structured in 22 consecutive episodes with coherent stories and openly looks at both sides of what has been strategically constructed, maintained and exploited as a so called social division.

The whole body of work comes as a result of open anthropological field research, and every viewer and recipient is invited to eventually form his or her own view!
