and War: the art
of the photojournalist
“Political photography is about getting to know the politicians, gaining their trust, learning their mannerisms; it’s about getting the politicians out of their suits. It’s about making them into real people. I’ve had the privilege to be accepted in the inner circle which has led to great access to our politicians both in and out of power. As a consequence I’ve been able to capture moments when the barrier is down. These moments lie at the heart of photojournalism. It is ‘fly on the wall’: the political process, decision-making and important meetings all taking place as if you are not there. It has taken years to establish the level of trust and access that enables me to get these kinds of extraordinary photographs.” - Andrew Parsons
