View 100 Days of Donald Trump's Washington, at Politico Magazine

100 days ago, as I felt this deep sense of confusion and emotional tumult, I was seized with the need to at least attempt to respond in some way to what I felt here in Washington, DC, where I've lived for the past 12 years.

What followed was an eye-opening, wide-ranging trip through the halls of Congress, and the city at large, as I tried to understand how this city, both locally and federally has been affected by the new administration. I gained a deeper empathy for people on both sides of this issue and met so many passionate, talented people who are trying to have their voices be heard.

A huge thanks to Janet Michaud and Katie Ellsworth for reaching out to me midway through this project and finding a home for it at Politico.

And please pick up a copy of the magazine, which came out today and features these images over *twenty* pages. I could not have dreamed of a personal project being featured like this and I'm very grateful. You can see the full layout here (PDF).

If you like the series, I'd love for you to share it.

I went down to photograph the early morning hours of the Presidential Inauguration before headed out for an assignment. It was quiet, and there were notably less people than I saw in 2009. Here's a selection of images from the morning.
