Postcards from the Iowa State Fair

Photographer Landon Nordeman traversed the Iowa State Fair in search of presidential candidates and interesting people. These are his photographs from the first three days of the event.
"Photographing rituals of celebration has always intrigued me -- whether it be worlds of fashion, art, or sports -- but the last three days were my first foray into the political scene," Nordeman said. "I loved it! The juxtaposition of two American traditions -- the political race and the state fair -- provided ample opportunity for me to make photographs that express my point of view."
