JFKのお孫さん ジャックシュロスバーグ氏 Photographing Jack Scholssberg

先日ボストンでJFKのお孫さんジャックシュロスバーグ氏を撮影してきました。ケネディー大統領のお孫さん、在日米大使キャロラインケネディー氏の23歳の息子さん。叔父様だった若くなくなったJFK Jr氏にそっくりのハンサムな好青年。これからのケネディー一族を担っていく若手です。 来年の1月から始まるトランプ政権について”オープンマインド”(先入観をなるべく持たずに)でいることは大切なことだ、と若きシュロスバーグ氏は語りました。

I photographed Jack Scholossberg, a grandson of JFK in Boston the other day.  He resembles his uncle, JFK Jr.  My photographs appeared on People's Magazine exclusive article.

Election Day!

Election Day!

I have spent many months covering the U.S. Presidential Election with my camera.  I started covering 18 Republican candidates and 4 Democratic candidates Spring 2015.  In the last 2 days, I photographed Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and President Obama. 

There is nothing ordinary about this campaign cycle. Within 24 hours, we will find out who will be the next “leader of free world”.   President Obama said during 2014 Democratic National Convention “There is not a liberal America and a conservative America—there is the United States of America. There is not a Black America and a White America and Latino America and Asian America—there's the United States of America.”   With hope, may America vote to continue to grow as a united nation.

Tim Kaine氏 : Hillary さんの副大統領候補

民主党大会でヒラリークリントン氏の副大統領候補指名を受けたバージニア州上院議員ティムケイン氏をニューハンプシャー州で昨日撮影してきました! 私にとってケイン議員撮影初めて。ケイン議員は94年に地元バージニア州リッチモンド市市会議員となり、その後リッチモンド市長、バージニア副知事、バージニア知事、現在バージニア州上院議員と、市政から国政までの政に携わってきた人。個人的に私はそういうことって大切だと思う。

昨日、ニューヨークでイスラム教のイマンと彼のアシスタントが銃撃された。悲しい事件がたくさん起きている。アメリカはいろいろな問題を抱えている。でもアメリカは問題と向き合おうとしている国だとも思う。ダイアローグを途切らせずにインクルージョン(iNCLUSION)の未来へ進んでいくことを祈る。

Photographed Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kain at St. Anselm College in Goffstown, New Hampshire yesterday! (Aug 13, 2016)

Trump Rally トランプラリー

昨日(8月16日)、ニューハンプシャー州でトランプ共和党指名候補者の撮影にいってきました。3月までは結構毎週のごとく取材していたトランプ氏。久しぶりにいくと。。。白人多い!! アジア系人口私を含めて10人未満、黒人系の人たちは(いたのかもしれないけど)私は見かけませんでした。。。

発言と共和党主流派との不調和音が物議を醸すトランプ氏。。。知り合いのニューハンプシャー州共和党員(こちらは主流派)と昨日のラリーで偶然鉢合わせすると「僕としては大統領選応援より、国会で共和党優位の体制を保てる運動、知事選に専念する。。。」と遠い目で語ってくれました。 

トランプ旋風で大混乱の共和党、どうなるのでしょう。。。写真はトランプ氏とサポーター。ニューハンプシャー州ウィンデム市で撮影 8月6日。

Covered Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump yesterday in Windhem, NH.

New Hampshire Primary Night

Last night, 2 "anti-establishment" candidates won New Hampshire Primary.  I was covering VT Senator Bernie Sanders at Concord High School in Concord, New Hampshire. 

The audience was very energized, inspired and moved by this victory.  The Political Revolution is coming...! 

Can Sanders keep this momentum?  We will find out...

I spent photographing Presidential Hopefuls in NH this labor day weekend.  On Saturday, I spent covering Hillary Clinton.  On Sunday, I spent covering Scott Walker.  On Monday, I photographed Bernie Sanders, John Kasick, Carley Fiorina and Lindsey Graham.  You can see more photographs on campaign on Road to the White House by Keiko .

  April 8, 2015 - Milford, New Hampshire, United States: Republican Presidential candidate, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) talks at the historic town hall in the 'Live Free or Die' state. Paul announced his candidacy on April 7 in Kentucky. In recent New Hampshire primary polls, Paul has placed third among likely Republican voters behind former governor Jeb Bush of Florida and Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. But on the ground, Paul inherits some of the grassroots network from his father’s past two presidential campaigns, giving him a head start over his rivals.
