"Public Discourse" by Reggie McCafferty
"Public Discourse" is a series of photographs of a wall painted to impart pro-Trump rhetoric in East Williamsburg. The collection chronicles the succession of changes in the walls façade over a two-month period leading up to the 2016 presidential election as it has been repeatedly altered/vandalized and repainted by the owner to reflect it’s original sentiment.
“Public Discourse” explores the role of the wall as a vehicle for dialogue in a public forum and reflects upon the meaning of private space as it exists in the public sphere.
All photos by Reggie McCafferty taken September 1 - November 1, 2016 in Brooklyn, NY. 32 pages with a cardstock cover, published in an edition of 20 on Election Day 2016.
