Since 2015, local photographer, Nate Gowdy has been working on a personal project to document the Trump era’s political campaigns and culture. His photos will be compiled in a book titled, Vote American! Presidential Politics and Protest in the Age of Trump. Gowdy has travelled across the country to cover political rallies and events. Last Wednesday (January 6, 2021), he was in Washington DC to document the atmosphere around the Congressional confirmation of electoral votes for Rolling Stone. The day was interrupted by a mob attack on the country’s capitol building. Gowdy shares his experiences there with KBCS’s Yuko Kodama.
