Photographing A Candidate

A great look inside the work done by The New York Times’ Damon Winter during the presidential campaign.

I know that I can never explain the day’s news the way our writers do, but what I can do is help the reader feel what it is like to be there and to make pictures that have meaning beyond the objects in the frame.

My role is not to make the candidate look good or make the crowds look impressive. My job is to tell the story.
