The Iowa State Fair is a traditional stomping ground for politicians. In 2015, photographer Landon Nordeman captured presidential candidates as they mingled with fairgoers, gave speeches and, of course, chowed down on all manner of fried food.
"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."
