In 2016, the British photographer George Georgiou photographed people lining the streets of big cities and small towns across North America. The people were watching, or waiting for, parades. The resulting series was taken across fourteen states, twenty-four cities, and twenty-six parades in the year Trump was elected President.
The mass gathering of people feels like a distant memory, a reminder of life before Covid. Amidst scenes of togetherness and apparent community harmony, moments of boredom, difference and suspended tension emerge, revealing the unity and fracture of American society.
