The Fly

2020, presidential election in the USA:  President Donald J. Trump and vice-president Michael R. Pence are facing Joseph R. Biden and Kamala Harris. The campaign dominates the media – and social media in particular – worldwide.

During a debate for the vice presidency, a fly landed on Pence’s forehead, which immediately became a globally discussed topic. According to social media, that fly had already decided the election.

That inspired me to capture a frightened look on Trump’s face, staring at the fly.
